Yang Shu

b. 1965, China

Yang Shu was born in Chongqing, Sichuan, China. A rebel against orthodoxy, his exuberant and unrestrained calligraphic style has been informed by a number of influences. Courting German Abstract Expressionism and American grafitti art, Yang is unafraid of appropriating wide ranging styles and tastes. He has been described by the critic Xu Sheng as 'against idealism, but [he] does have ideals in painting,' indicating the radically experimental nature of Yang's paintings that nevertheless aspire to innovate new forms in painting.
