I adore this mans work . I have his book of painting and a book of his drawings. What I see is a figure in space with dramatic lighting. The atmosphere Wu creates with light and color is so appealing to me. I so admire the way he uses lighting. I put the painting of the Girl With Scarf that I had tried to do a little study from - just so you could see. Go Google Zhaoming Wu - he has a website. Beautiful work. Common threads? big simple shapes, one figure in space seems to be theme - more than crowds or multiple figures - the atmosphere and use of space, colorful but in a quieter way than say Burridge or Hessam. Drama. I like the way he handles the abstract qualities of the fabrics.
