Born in Xi’an, the ancient capital of China (and
home of the Terracotta Army), Yuliang began drawing from early
age encouraged by his father, a leading architect. He later
studied fashion design and graphics, obtaining his degree
from Xi’an University. Much of his initial work has
been published in magazines and books in China. He came to
London in 2002 in search of new experience and to further
develop his skills.
Since then Yuliang has pursued his life-long passion of painting
the male figure. In addition to this, he has also made a name
for himself in the world of interior design. His paintings
are romantic fantasies in a style all of its own.
When you first encounter his work you can feel the intense
erotic attraction of the male form. The figures are often
caught in intimate moments, their beauty presented with strong
and thick brushwork, creating a brilliantly vibrant palette
of light and shade.
With this his second exhibition of paintings at Adonis Art,
Yuliang Wu brings once again his unique romantic sensibility
of the Far East to the depiction of the male form.
