This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Noted for his technical treatment of modulating ink tones and ink splashes,  Jia Youfu applies dense and spacious strokes, thus achieving his unique style of interpenetration between realistic landscape and abstract forms.  He often combines the monumental landscape painting tradition of the Northern Song period (960–1127) with a new emphasis on dramatic composition, color, and contrasting plays of light and dark.

Jia Youfu is a native of Suning, Hebei.  In 1965 he graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts where he studied painting under Li Keran (1907-1989). Then he taught at the Central Academy of Drama.

From 1977 on, he visited the Taihang Mountains for artistic inspirations. The mountains on the border of Hebei and Shanxi provinces, are a patriotic location that served as a base for the Chinese Communist Party during the Sino-Japanese war.
