Participating Artists
Yang Yongliang (China)
・
Born in 1980 in Shanghai, Yang Yongliang graduated from China Academy of Art in 2003 majored in visual communication. He started his experiments with contemporary art in 2005, including various medias such as photography, painting, video and installation. Yang Yongliang exploits a connection between tradition and contemporary, implementing ancient oriental aesthetics and literati beliefs with modern language and digital techniques. His work as an expanding meta-narrative that draws from history, myth and social culture plays out in the context of city and its ever-changing landscapes. He is known for using architectural images as brushstrokes; heavy mountain rocks with enriched details draw a faithful reference to Song Dynasty’s landscape painting. Urban development gives prosperity to city life although it imprisons many lives on the other side of the coin. Similarly, centuries-old cultural tradition in China has dignified profoundness, but it is always fraught with stagnation. Ancient Chinese people painted landscape in admiration of magnificent nature, Yang’s works meanwhile lead us towards critical re-consideration on contemporary reality. In terms of media and contents, a strong sense of post-modernism is coexisted with a traditional aesthetics. His works are collected by prominent public institutes like British Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The artist lives in Shanghai and New York.

Participating Artists
Miwa Komatsu (Japan)
@miwakomatsu_official
・
Born in Nagano in 1984. In her childhood, Komatsu had close contact with many living natures thanks to the rich natural environment: the experience of being present at their final moment led the artist to form her unique view of life and death, which linked to the peculiar style toward the beauty of death. Komatsu began copperplate engraving after entering Joshibi College of Art and Design. At the age of 20, her work “49 Days” was appraised with its originality and it opened Komatsu’s way to be a professional. Starting from copperplate engraving, Komatsu has enlarged her ways of expression to acrylic paintings and even to Arita porcelain in recent years. She has presented various works adopted themes such as death and the Gods who preside over it, divine SPIRIT with strong embodiment of her performance. Komatsu realized consecutive solo shows at the museums including those of in Nagano, her home town. In 2014, the artist dedicated her work to Izumo Taisha Shrine (the oldest shrine in Japan, considered as where the deity strongly dwells), which elevated her creation power to a greater extent. In 2015, her porcelain guardian dogs collaborated with a land scape artist, Kazuyuki Ishihara, was exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show in London; the work won the Gold Prize, entered the permanent collection of the British Museum. The reputation of Komatsu knows no boundaries; her work is collected by prominent institution like World Trade Center (New York). The artist gains “Young Artist of the Year” (2017), becomes the Official Ambassador for Maison Christian Dior, and appears frequently in the medias.

Participating Artists
Huang Yuxing (China)
・
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 tried to precisely represent these objects, he has neither absolutely abandoned their shapes 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, and the motivation for permanent growth as well.

Ronald Ventura (Philippines)
@ronaldventurastudio
・
Born in 1973 in Manila, the Philippines, where he continues to live and work, Ronald Ventura ranks as one of the most acclaimed artists of his generation in Southeast Asia.
Soon after graduating from the University of Sto.Tomas, Manila (B.F.A) in 1993, he began to work as an instructor at College of Fine Arts & Design, his alma mater. Ventura’s paintings and sculptures are now among the most recognizable images of contemporary art in Southeast Asia with their unique combinations of figurative motifs. His work features a complex layering of images and styles, ranging from hyperrealism to cartoons and graffiti. Ventura takes the layering process in his work as a metaphor for the multifaceted national identity of the Philippines. Over the centuries, the profound influences of various occupying powers — Spain, Japan, and the United States — along with the underlying indigenous culture, have produced a complex and at times uneasy sense of identity. Ventura explores this historical and psychic phenomenon through a dialogue of images evoking East and West, high and low, old and young — seen, for example, in allusions to Old Master paintings or Japanese and American cartoons. He draws our attention to the “second skin” of cultural signifiers that each person carries with him, however unwittingly. Ventura views skin as an expressive surface — written on with tattoos, concealed under layers of imagery, or exploding outwards to reveal an inner world of fantasy and conflict.
