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.

 Fu Yuxiang portrays “warmth, softness, and skills to create a state of life, by loving and utilizing simply black and white color, shows the truth of object, and the source of the mystery of the world.”  – Du Xiyun
