Four artists have been inspired by Chinese cultures and the Chinese aesthetics tradition which are transformed to new art values in their paintings. Sanzi was born in April of 1965 in Yangzhou, Jiangsu China. He initially is influenced by Taoism. The content of Sanzi’s works is cheering and highly enlightening.

Gao Xiao Yun was born in Shaan Xi province in 1977, China and graduated from the Department of Oil Painting of the China Academy of Fine Art.

He does not try to duplicate exact scenery of Suzhou water township in his painting, instead, he expresses a calm and peaceful atmosphere of the landscape.
Qi Yu has born in Xiamen in 1969 and graduated from the Decoration and Design department of the Central Academy of Art and Craft. The creation of Qi Yu’s artwork reverts from ceramic art form to the characteristics of the porcelain itself. The “FUTU” is mainly composed of ceramics and cinnabar. He seeks to extract them from the original ontological language. Through free and infrequent creation methods, the image of the signifier can be visualized to explore the experience self. Kium is a Malaysia artist, born in 1968, who is devoted to discover new expression of Chinese ink paintings. She believes art is all about “beauty and passion”. Therefore, we barely to see traditional arrangement of Chinese painting in her works of art. On the contrary, she depicts her emotion about endless circle of life. In the series of Infinite Circle, Kium creates an impression of depth onto very thin rice papers, inviting viewers to look deeply into each painting. Individuals will draw their own conclusion as to what they are seeing as they ponder on their own emotions and experiences.
