Biography from Cutter & Cutter Fine Art Galleries:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Chinese painter, Liu Yuanshou, was born in Beijing in 1967. He earned a degree in oil painting from the Capital Normal University of Beijing in 1991, and has exhibited and won awards in many prestigious exhibitions throughout Asia; including China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan. While Liu Yuanshou hails from the austere north of China, he has become fascinated by the seductively temperate cultural and physical climate of the eastern coastal province of Jiangsu, which lies east of Anhui and north of Shanghai.

Silkworm culture is and always has been an important part of Jiangsu's history, as is the production of silk textiles. Perhaps because of this circumstance, silk is especially evident in Liu's art, which primarily focuses on portraits of young women from the Jiangsu region. The artist is known for dressing his sultry subjects in Shanghai period or modern-day regional attire, as well as for integrating well-researched architectural elements and interiors from Jiangsu's urban and rural areas. According to Liu Yuanshou, by joining these two elements, he achieves an ancient look of bygone nostalgia, one that conveys a sense of the profound beauty and historical longevity of China's cultural past, which he fears is being lost in today's frenetic technologically-oriented society. "Red was the color of China in the 70s and it represented more than just a colo it's a complicated conception," says Liu. "It's also closely related to women in many ways."
