Artist Statement

Yang Yang is a contemporary painter and sculptor of unconventional forms. Liu Qi Wei, curator of the Museum of Fine Art of Shaanxi, describes Yang Yang's work as combining the quality of the "Oriental mystics with tragic magnificence." The medium of Yang Yang's works range from works on paper and canvas to sculptural works in mixed-media. His works center on representations of human energy. His installations, such as "Call of the Crow" (acrylic on canvas drawing and mixed-media sculptures, 80 x 60 x 40 ins), converge his compositional mediums in one body of work.

Born in Nanchang, China, Yang Yang's works are widely collected by public and private collectors. His works have been shown in solo exhibitions in institutions including the Museum of Fine Art of Shannxi, China and at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts in the U.S.
