Artist Yu Hanyu
A reinvention of brilliant jade and gold -Traditional Chinese
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

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.
