Yang Yang was born in Nanchang, China and began to paint and draw at a very early age. He studied under such master artists as Fu Baoshi, and ZhuDa and has exhibited collaboratively with his parents. In 1984, Yang came to the United States. He earned a Masters Degree in Art from Augustana College, Sioux Falls, SD in 1987. Yang Yang has a dynamic and unique style. His paintings focus on human interactions where displays of conflicting emotions become compatible. His early works followed traditional Chinese art theories and principles of natural beauty and mysticism. Today however, his art style has developed through intensive training and broad travels. Yang combines both Eastern and Western culture while arranging space and figures in his compositions. He is skillful at unifying both Oriental compositional forms and Western color harmony. He invites the viewer to "feel his art through one's heart." Yang has given lectures both nationally and internationally and has exhibited in New York, China, and the SOGO Gallery of Hong Kong.
The exhibit is sponsored in part by the Kansas Arts Commission and the Reifschneider Eye Center.
