The collaboration between two leaders in the art world will bring their collective creativity to the rapidly maturing world of digital art.

About Huang Yuxing
Huang Yuxing (b. 1975, Beijing) is widely recognized in his generation for his ability to create paintings that reflect and preserve the process of their creation. Colours, brushstrokes and traces of the artist’s hand persist on his canvases after being continuously layered and mixed. The meticulous brushstrokes and intense colors that pervade his works are based on the traditional Chinese technique of realism, “Gongbi Zhongcai”, while he builds on these principles through a distinctive contemporary style that is constantly evolving.
Huang’s artistic practice is characterized by extraordinary depth: while his works may at first evoke an expressionist style, they are deeply rooted in a detailed construction of landscape and human form that exudes vivid colors and reflects the experience of creation. Huang’s works are characterized by a sharp and clear contrast between the vitality of color and the harsh reality of life. Rivers, bubbles, treasure, sunrises and sunsets are recurring motifs in his works, presented with dazzling visual impact, yet embodying the artist’s comprehensive study of individuals, nature, life, politics and beyond.
