Liu Yangwen 劉養聞
Liu Yangwen was born in Nanjing, China, in 1995. He graduated from Oil Painting Department of Fine Arts School, Nanjing University of the Arts. He is now living in Nanjing. Liu had his first solo exhibition Dazzling Flowers, Spinning Gazes in Tong Gallery+Projects in Beijing, 2021. His works have been selected to various group exhibitions in Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art (Shanghai) and Jiangsu Provincial Art Museum.
Liu began to create the series of figurative floral art in 2018-2019. The oil paintings emphasize solemness by using cool tones and lines which perfectly develop the bouquet in his mind. His creations often lead audiences to re-examine the conventional perspective of flowers. Since 2020, Liu has gradually turned to present his works in an abstract way. The flowers in the works gradually disappear, and more complicated lines appear instead. He tends to use blue, black and white colours in combination with the reconstruction of lines, giving more power to his works.
