Yang Shu is one of the youngest artists who had the famous exhibition Chinese Avant-Garde Art in 1989 at National Art Museum of China, and he is also the explorer of the Chinese Experimental Painting in the early days. His inherent sculpt talent and steady academic sketch basis did not become an obstacle for his creation, but helped him to form the deep cognition of abstract structure and colour from the perspective of classical aesthetics. Since 1990s, Yang Shu's work has been gradually transformed from the non-figurative art that influenced by the expressionism to the present visual creation with the unique 'Yang Shu' glamour. His work not only sheds lights on the changes of the physical world but also integrates the critical spirit and the aesthetic creation; it transforms the structural damage into the composite-materials reconstruction and condenses the cold yet fully explosive-force poetry.
