YU YOUHAN 余友涵
b. 1943, works and lives in Shanghai

Carrying out his artistic practice through paintings, Yu Youhan has a unique perspective on western and Chinese art. In A Pocket Western Art History about Mao series (around 2000s), Yu Youhan looks at the exceptional person through the eyes of great European artists, creating works in the style of Gauguin, Picasso, Mondrian or like here - Op artist Vaserely. This is typical of Yu who has been changing the way he paints throughout his long life, from abstract to pop to landscape to figurative to abstract in his constant exploration the possibilities of painting today.

“Yu Youhan attributes the stylistic plurality of his own painting to a tendency within indigenous Chinese culture towards shifting aesthetic viewpoints. Yu illustrates this point with reference to traditional Chinese landscape garden design, which, he contends, opens up constantly changing perspectives as the viewer 'moves through the space' in contrast to an emphasis on the 'totality of the garden' in western landscape garden design.” (Paul Gladstone)
