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

Yu is not only an artist, a calligraphist, poet, but he also plays Chinese instruments.  He has never received any academic art education, on the other hand, his understanding towards painting comes from his experiences when he served in the military, which he was inspired by the geometry, and subconsciously influenced by the concept of hominess, military experiences and landscapes of Taiwan.  Yu invented a new way of painting, dealing with the “spaces and distances” by “overlapping” and “moving the seeing point” techniques, in addition to the traditional foreground, middle ground and background; he transformed the spaces into a more complicated level.
