Yuqi Wang

b 1958

"What draws me, as an artist, to put brush to canvas is at once both  public and private. The world I reveal is a blend of both the ‘Occident’ and the ‘Orient’, my passion for both Classic European portraiture, and the Pre-Raphaelite movement is gently kissed by my Chinese heritage.

I find the classic styles to be timeless, with a warmth and honesty not offered any more with modern movements."

Résumé

Yuqi Wang was trained in China and the US and is now based in New York. Among others, he is a member of The American Society of Portrait Artists, The Portrait Society of America and The Oil Painter Association of China and has exhibited extensively across China and America.

His work hangs in public collections in China and the collection of the Japanese Royal Family.

The influence of Rossetti and Burne-Jones is unmistakable, and in the tradition of the Pre-Raphaelites Yuqi manages to create work which is as sensitive as it is powerful.
