Huang Yuanqing 黃淵青 (b. 1963)

Huang Yuanqing was born in Shanghai, China in 1963, learning and practising calligraphy from a young age. He graduated from the Shanghai University of Science and Technology in 1985. Huang later studied at the Shanghai Normal University in 1987 and graduated from the Oil Painting Department in 1989. He currently lives and works in Shanghai.

A representative of Chinese calligraphic abstraction, Huang extracts visual elements of calligraphy into his lyrical paintings. As he sets the lines and stokes free, they transfigure into animated beats bursting with energy and spontaneity. Painting in a multitude of colours, his oeuvre is expressively free-spirited.

Huang has held many solo and group exhibitions in China, Taiwan, Japan and other parts of Asia and Europe. His works are permanently collected in Ming Yuan Art Museum, Shanghai (China), Shanghai Art Museum (China), Shanghai Museum of Glass Art (China), Shanghai Zhangjiang Art Museum (China), China International Import Expo (China) and Arario Gallery, Seoul (South Korea).
