Ye Hongxing


Artist bio

Nationality Chinese, b. 1972
Location: Beijing, China

Ye Hongxing was born in Guangxi, 1972. After graduating from the Art Department of Education Academy in Guilin, Guangxi (1995) she soon went on to also graduate from the Central Fine Art Academy Printing Department in Beijing, 1998.

Ye Hongxing employs traditional Chinese motifs and modern elements in her Fusion series. Expressing a unique vision by combining the traditionally Western medium of oil paint together with Chinese porcelain decorative patterns. Her paintings are very alluring self-portraits in which her face, with eyes-closed, appears behind bright winding floral patterns. Composed of shades of grey, her facial expression is of particular significance. As the artist is very concerned with the juxta position of “peace and luxury”, one can detect a tranquil or almost mundane emotion in her gaze. In contrast to using somber tones, the vibrant colors and exquisite composition of flowers and vines elicit the feeling of luxury. Consequently, her work seems to embrace a duality of notions: realism and visionary.

Ye Hongxing’s work was selected by the Curator of the Asian Art Museum in California and the Director of Art Cologne (out of over a thousand other emerging Chinese Artists) as one of China’s top 20 young emerging artists in Chinese Art Prize 2006. With a Master’s Degree from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Ye Hongxing has recently garnered a lot of attention, with her works being shown at one of the most important and prestigious art expositions in Europe, such as Art Cologne, as well as in Miami, New York and Washington, DC.
