    Over the last 10-20 years, contemporary Chinese artists from the Southern province of Yunnan have acquired great fame as a flourishing art center - especially for modern art prints. First exhibitions have been held outside China. Western art critics and museum curators are beginning to speak of the "Yunnan Art School".

    Hao Ping, Pray - 1991
    copyright Hao Ping
    Hao Ping was born in Yunnan in China. In 1980 he graduated from the Department of Fine Art of Yunnan Art College. He is one of the figure heads of the Yunnan Art School. Hao Ping had several exhibitions outside China - in Japan, USA, France and Germany. His works are in the possession of museums in the USA and in Japan. Hao Ping's prints are made in woodcut technique with thick, bright oil colors.
    The artist's favorite subjects are women in gorgeous costumes from the ethnic minority people in Yunnan. He uses flat, large areas, sometimes of nearly cubist forms. But his designs remain always very figurative. Art friends who like strong colors, will get passionate with Hao Ping art works.

    Ma Li Biography
    Ma Li, Colors of Mountains, 2003
    copyright Ma Li
    Ma Li was born in Yunnan Province, China. Since 1986 he has exhibited widely in China, Japan and also in the UK. The artist works primarily in the woodcut reduction print technique. His work is very colorful and depicts the life of the rural minority communities in Yunnan. Ma Li teaches at the Simao University and has held workshops in woodblock reduction technique in Bristol, UK.
    Favorite motifs of Ma Li are mountains and its inhabitants. He has been attracted by mountains since he was a child. For him they are a place of mystery and fascination. In Yunnan with mountains as high as 6,000 meters - one of them has never been conquered by man yet - Ma Li finds the perfect environment for his inspirations.

    Shi Yi - born 1939

    Shi Yi, Winter Moon, 1999
    copyright Shi Yi
    Shi Yi is professor at Yunnan Art College. His media is the woodcut. The printing technique used by him, is wet water printing, a specifically Chinese method that produces watercolor-like image. Shi Yi belongs to the major representatives of Yunnan Art School. His works are not only in Chinese museums, but in some major Western museums as well. The artist has exhibited in the U.S.A. and in Europe.
    The world of Shi Yi is the subtropical scene in Southern Yunnan along the Mekong river. His images take us to a perfect and intact environment and make us dream of Shangri La. Is it a dream or does Shangri La exist?

    By spring time of 2004, we at artelino have seen only three prints by Yang Yongsheng. They are characterized by vibrant designs and color combinations. Yang Yongsheng print images create moods. Hasui Kawase would have liked them. (...and would have bought them in artelino auctions - smile!)

    Zhang Xiaochun - born 1959

    Zhang Xiaochun - Biography
    Zhang Xiaochun, Go Out, 1996
    copyright Zhang Xiaochun
    Zhang Xiaochun was born in Mojiang, in Yunnan province. In 1980 he graduated from Simao Art School (Yunnan) and in 1984 from Yunnan Fine Art Academy. The artist has received several outstanding, national Chinese awards. His art works are in the collections of several Chinese art museums.
    Zhang Xiaochun works in different styles. Some of his art works remind of French Fauvism or German Expressionism. We at artelino like especially his depictions of tribal people in yellow-brown-red colors. We have never seen anything similar before.
