Folk elements in Chinese contemporary oil painting, on the one hand, reflects the folk art strong vitality; On the other hand also reflects the Chinese contemporary artists under the impact of the globalization of reflection and consciously. At any one time and art history trend, the loss of the national characteristics of artists and works become subservient to the foreign art and followers, this not only makes the national culture in the weak position of being modified, will also lose their native artists national self-confidence, such creation is also a lack of energy, of course. Contemporary painting in recent years, active and prosperity, not only benefit from the artist’s widening horizons and active creative thinking, more benefit from the respect of the Chinese artists for this national culture and mining.

Under the current cultural environment, some artists especially young painters of the folk art of rich culture, as conservative and backward. In the current art education in colleges and universities, the traditional culture of neglect and lack of basic education, also the inheritance and development of the more traditional folk adversely. However, we should also see, the protection of traditional culture and excavate, government has been on the agenda, rescue and protection of material and non-material culture has become to reshape a state policy of Chinese culture, the folk art of rescue and become an important part of mining. From the point of painting in practice, for the traditional and folk elements in contemporary oil painting reproductions more tend to borrow on the concept of performance of the nation’s traditional means; On techniques to fully focus on traditional and folk art technique, the traditional elements have begun to highlight in the middle of the picture.
