Rain & Shining: Yang Shu Solo Exhibition
June 21, 2014 – August 3rd, 2014
Yang Shu (b. 1965, Chongqing) was graduated from Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts, Department of Oil Painting. He is an excellent artist who has spent 20 years on the career, his graffiti-styled expressionism painting has been known and recognized by the art scene. Among his recent works presented under the theme of “Rain & Shining”, he shows us new clues. Although they have a profound connection with his early graffiti-styled works, they were created on the basis of Yang Shu’s travel photos, as a result, they present us more figurative symbols and information. Like traveling notes, they present the fragmented feelings in a more fragmented way. As a result, Yang Shu’s consistent doubt and damage to the themed concept and narrative is revealed. He always presents the possibility of painting in an unexpected way, and conveys his idealist faith.
