Fu Yuxiang – Studio Visit
Fu Yuxiang at his Chongqing Fashion Museum of Art, Chongqing, China
I have spent the summer painting and traveling in China. Setting up a studio in the office of a coffee shop in Chongqing, I have had a wonderful introduction to cultural, art, and life in China.
This past week I had the pleasure to meet renowned Chinese artist Fu Yuxiang in his studio in Chongqing. Operating publication, design, and a multitude of additional functions outside of paintingto, Fu Yuxiang is the embodiment of the modernity and creative edge in the Chinese art scene.
