Guan Yu: To Be Hungry for Wind
This is a solo exhibition of paintings by contemporary young Chinese artist Guan Yu, who was born in 1989. With a unique angle on daily life, Guan boldly adds large areas of blocks with light brushwork and bright colors, improving the “purity” of the painting and easing the canvas’ burden of carrying pictorial information.
Born in Qingdao, Shandong Province, Guan graduated from China Academy of Art in 2011 and obtained an MFA degree from the Slade School of Fine Art of the University College London in 2013. She lives and works in Qingdao, London and other parts of the world. July 15– August 20, 2017 Hive Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing
