Oil Paintings by Xie Chuyu
Xie Chuyu was born in Shantou City of Guangdong Province in 1962. He graduated from the Oil Painting Department of Guangzhou Academy of Art in 1988. He has continued his classical training for many years, and is now an assistant professor at the Guangzhou Academy of Art, and a painter for Guangdong Art Creation Institute.
In the words of Zhong Ming, “In Chuyu`s works, one can keenly feel his sentimental asceticism. The background (can be) gloomy and confused, with a figure showing ignorance of her previous existence and this life, which constructs an artistic conception as if you had been in te remote past. You must think deeply about the brief youth and the limits of human existence, which arouses sorrow and reluctance.”
