The enjoyable language form of art is the romantic lyric of artist, as well as an important way of expression of Chinese art.

Similarly, the imagery and enjoyable spirit give my new paper-cut art creative incomparable vitality andvigor, which makes him wander in the pure and natural artistic beauty given by Chinese enjoyable spirit!
The creation of Zhaoxigang’s enjoyable spirit of new paper-cut art can be expressed from the following two aspects:
①The enjoyable spirit in Chinese folk art
Chinese folk art has rich connotation and profound cultural accumulation.
It is the treasure house of the original enjoyable spirit creation. Chinese folk art includes drama art, New Year paintings paper-cut, folk toys, and building decoration… in which are fu of rich folk aesthetic enjoyable spirit interests, natural and uncomplicatedfeatures. This is the human original artistic feeling of childlike innocence.
In addition, there also are distinct folk craft originality, the folk beauty of crafts and decoration with a deep decoration enjoyable spirit method, which may unconsciously reveal rational and emotional beauty of image.I deeply appreciate the beauty of the so-called “gorgeously wrought-colorfully and dazzlingly embellished,a lotus flower just rose from under water”, and it can be summarized as the fact that subtle and organized orders are like graceful and clean of gorgeously wrought-colorfully and dazzlingly embellished, rough bold and natural emotional islike magnificent and uninhibited of a lotus flower just rising from under water.

Chinese painting art advocates the beauty of artistic conception and the humanities spirit of natureunity. Traditional sculpture, Chinesefreehand brushwork and collaborate-style painting all have a reflection of the artistic features. The stone carving modeling of Han DynastyHuo Qubing tomb has a wonderfulnature, and its carving is based on the shape of stone with natural interest. In the traditional painting art of Qi Baishi, Chen Zizhuang, Eight Eccentric Artists in Yangzhou, HuangBinhong and so on, and in the visual art language of freehand brushwork of murals in Mogao Caves, Yongle Temple and Fahai Temple, the writing and the natural smart lines are fulland delightful, which constitutes the freehand characteristics in Chinesetraditional painting art. The beauty of the Chinese painting art is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and it fully demonstrates its modeling of good pleasure such as false or true intangible beauty, rhythm beauty of line, symbolic implication, etc.which flow with evergreen charm of the artistic life.
