Chi-Tong Yang

Biography from Kingsley Art Auction

Born in Fengyuan, Taichung in 1906.  Gained admission into Taipei Normal University in 1920 and was taught by Kinichiro Ishikawa.  Yang devoted his life to art and showed at several exhibits.  He was chosen to exhibit his oeuvres in the Paris Spring Salon Show, Japanese Art Exhibition, Brazil's International Art Exhibition and other international showcases.

Yang Chi-Tong excels at oil painting and non-transparent water color.  His painting style is relentless yet rigorous and magnificent with class.  He once hoped to complete his "One Hundred Beauty Painting;" usually containing girls resembling models.  Usage of lines is free flowing, colors have vibrant touches in sketching a girl's posture.  The display of colors is combined with 3 important elements: color image, saturation and brightness.  This brings forward a delicate and exquisite style on canvas.
