Huang YuxingChina

Born in Beijing, Huang Yuxing graduated from the Department of Mural Painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2000. He was the first guest artist at the Yuz Museum Project Room in 2015. Huang Yuxing's work is not limited to the standard of a certain ideal image, but also grows naturally from within the painting. From the beginning of his career, water, whirlpools, forests, minerals, crystals and even architecture have been consistently his favorite motifs. Although never tries to precisely represent these objects naturalistically, he has neither completely abandoned their shape in the real world. Moreover, he even attempts to reconstruct the impression of these objects. For example, when standing in front of a river, people usually tend to stare blankly without realizing it. The colors that Huang Yuxing loads onto the canvas immerse the audience in the same emptiness. But different from the Pointillism of Post-Impressionists, Huang never passively waits for the audience's eyes to mix the solid colors, but overlaps the colors and adjusts them over and over to finally reach his point of satisfaction; he intends to evoke the energy within his paintings by abiding this creative process. The modification of colors, shapes and compositions have taken control of the artist and kept him busy. It is during this process that the painting gains for itself a life of freshness and self-sufficiency, as well as the motivation for continuous growth.
