Abstract – Figurative – Contemporary – Notes on the paintings of Qi Yang

A Chinese artist living in Germany, Qi Yang developed an artistic concept fusing together Chinese Buddhist philosophy with German Expressionism, emphasizing feeling over composition.

This fusion manifests itself in his works, which range from papers to canvasses to ceramics, with Qi Yang being particularly adep of the art of simple intuitive and ecnomical brush work and colour schemes. The simplicity of these compositions belies the rich, complex inner life of their artist.
