Yanqun Xue

Biography from Shanghai Hosane Auction Co., Ltd.

Born in Daliang, Liaoning Province, China, Xue Yanqun graduated from the Oil Painting Department of Lu Xun Art Academy, where he remained until 1989 in order to gain his Master's. During this time, he became a member of the Chinese Artists' Association and in subsequent years, Professor of the Academy. Xue is also a member of the Oil Painting Institute of China. His formative works were greatly influenced by Russian art, to which period 'Haystack', 'A Naked Older' and 'Teachers' are attributed. However, over the course of his graduate student programme, he was exposed the work of the Italian Renaissance Masters and his mature style combines these influences with traditional Chinese characteristics. The result is a bright and elegant style. The representative work 'Pigeon', which was exhibited at “The First Oil Painting Exhibition of China”, typifies his indisputably Oriental portraiture and figurative skills. Since 1984, 200 of his works have been selected for exhibition at home and abroad and he has been accredited with national silver and copper prizes of excellence many times. 230 of his pieces are among the collection of the Chinese Art Museum as well as those housed by overseas academic organizations and private collectors.
