Yang De Yu(b. 1963)
Yang De Yu, After the Rain, 2014, oil on canvas, 18″ x 14″
Yang’s style is derived from western movements, primarily Impressionism and Expressionism; however, he uses these techniques to paint Chinese landscapes and proverbs of Buddhism. In After the Rain, the artist blends western techniques with Chinese literati landscape painting and form to create a hybrid of east and west.
Yang De Yu was born in Sichuan Province and later received a teaching education in 1984. He taught in the Southwest University Department of Fine Arts as a painting professor before starting his current professorship at Chengdu University School of Fine Arts. He recently had a solo exhibition at Pixel Art Space in Chengdu. The artist currently lives and works in Chengdu.
