With the improvement of people's living standards and the development of society, art has also achieved great development. China's contemporary expressive oil painting is an art form formed in the process of art development. As a traditional art in China, folk art promoted the social development at that time in a specific historical period. Contemporary oil painters have made great breakthroughs in artistic creation by innovating artistic styles and themes and starting from folk art. Expressionist oil painting reflects the painter's criticism of reality and strong personal emotion, without any disguise. Many contemporary artists have seen this. Chinese young artists actively understand the connotation of folk art and more intuitively express their inner world, which also provides an opportunity for the all-round development of contemporary expressive oil painting. There are many common factors between Chinese folk art and contemporary expressive oil painting in seeking the expression of simple and concise ideas. This requires oil painters to draw nutrition from the color, modeling and thinking of folk art in the creation of contemporary expressive oil painting.
