Who is Yu Hanyu?

 Yu Hanyu, a native of Hubei, was born in 1964 and now lives in Beijing.

In 1985, Yu graduated from Hubei Academy of Fine Arts Department of Painting.

 In 1992, Yu got his degree from the Central Academy of Fine Arts where he studied landscape painting and calligraphy. Now, a national renown artist, Yu is the president of China Federation of Literary Resource Center and Deputy Dean of Beijing Academy Institute of Traditional Painting and Calligraphy.

     As a famous painter active on the national and international art scene, Yu has participated in numerous exhibitions both at home and abroad and has had his works featured numerous times in both domestic and global art newspapers and TV series such as "Fine Arts", "Artistic Observation" and "Chinese Painting and Calligraphy" and CCTV. Yus paintings and calligraphy works have been auctioned by Rongbaozhai Auction Company, Hanhai Auction Company and Guardian Auction Company and were well received by collectors.

 Artist Yu Hanyu

 Art style

A reinvention of brilliant jade and gold -Traditional Chinese Painting
 with a focuses on Tibetan glaciers

 One of the defining features of Yu Hanyus landscape paintings is the atmosphere they create. Mr.Yu's artistic creation draw their inspiration and theme from the snow-capped mountains and glaciers of Tibet. Much like how the prophet Muhammad went into the mountains to find retrospection and insight, the artist Yu went into the sacred mountains of Tibet where he found inspiration and breakthrough - it is in this pristine and harsh environment that Yu came into a new and elegant artistic style of landscape painting of his own.

Mr.Yu elevates traditional Chinese paintings to an all together other level by producing the effects of oil painting through using traditional painting mediums of rice paper and heavy ink.

 For his reinventions and breakthroughs, Yu has received many accolades:

In 1994,
his work
landscape was awarded the silver medal at t
he third International Ink Painting Festival.

In 1996,
 his work "Wushan Yun" was chosen as part of the selected works of teachers and students and featured in the Fine Arts in Taiwan Zhongshan Memorial Hall exhibition.

In 1997
 his works were shown at the Chinese Painting Research Institute Exhibition Center.

In 2000
an art book titled "Chinese painting and calligraphy masterpiece - Yu Han Yu
was published.

                                  Yu Hanyus Landscape Paintings

 Tibet is Yus muse - he is enchanted by the beautiful scenery and bewitched into repeatedly visiting the snowy plateaus that few people even dare to tread, all to seek out inspiration in the magnificent scenery of Tibet. There, Yu spent months to create his works, two of which titled "snow-capped mountains" and "glaciers .

 “I’ve always wanted to bring Traditional Chinese Painting to the world! It is one of the reasons I focus so very much on color. I chose Tibet's snow-capped mountains glaciers to be the theme not only because Tibet has not been painted in this way before but also because Tibet has transfixed me like it has the rest of the world. Therefore, I feel the artistic style and thematic content fall together perfectly - the artistic style is unique and modern, the theme is beautiful and global
 - together it is perfectly poised to make a global impact.”
