8 Chinese Artists to Look Out For

Jia Yuan Hua

I love traditional Chinese culture. I especially love historical sites, they are so beautiful, not only because they are old and have thousands years of history, but because they house traditional culture.

The Chinese artist Jia Yuan Hua works mainly in oil and acrylic painting with a focus on traditional architectural and decorative Chinese motifs. After graduating from Beijing Union University in 2003, Jia Yuan Hua started a career as a computer specialist. He later uncovered his passion for art while helping out in his wife’s gallery. Being surrounded by art inspired him to pursue being a professional artist.

Historical Chinese sites and traditional architecture inspire Hua not only because of their monumental character but because they illustrate the history and passing down of traditions in Chinese culture.

Dake Wong

There are a limited number of paintings I can create in my life, so I just enjoy the act of painting with the time I’m lucky enough to have.

Dake Wong is an exciting Chinese artist who has participated in a range of exhibitions in Beijing. Jumping between realistic still life paintings and various street art styles, he creates striking, detailed, impressively intricate works that reflect on a country full of intriguing contradictions. Whether it’s realistic painting or stencil graffiti, he doesn’t abide by any single technique but rather uses whatever comes naturally to him in order to best express his message.

Trained in both traditional Chinese painting and contemporary art, my work creates a melding of these two influences.

Feng Liu

Because I grew up in the mountains as a child and lived in Xiamen for a long time after graduating from university, I particularly like to paint mountains and the sea.

Liu Feng, graduated from Fujian Arts and Crafts School in 1984. He was then assigned by the state to work in Zhangping Artificial Marble Factory where he began to study the art of stone powder painting.

He also uses lacquer and oil painted canvas or stone slabs.

Jingyuan Wang

My abstract painting is a subversion of Chinese traditional ink painting and a compliment to the world of abstract art. I used my subconscious mind to explore this vast universe.

Jingyuan Wang is an acclaimed artist from China. His striking paintings are made using Chinese ink and polypropylene, two materials that he says differ greatly from the paints and inks used in typical Western artwork. Wang’s abstract paintings are a complex exploration of lines and colors, reflecting the mutual entanglement and confrontation between human desires and thoughts. The juxtaposition between colors, lines, and shapes in his work reflects the internal conflicts he believes are experienced by all people.
