YINGZHAO LIU : PEONY AND LEMON REFLECTION
Chinese artist Yingzhao Liu is one of the Asian artist whose works are remarkable by their finesse and clarity and whose prices are still affordable : sharpness and image resolution of every of his pictures make his works worth a moment of serious thinking when compared to most of the Contemporary productions.
Offered by a California gallery at $6800 this Peony and Lemon may be negotiable at $6000 in the current economic conditions. However Chinese artists are hot and IMHO a very good long term investment.
Liu was born in 1956 in Heilongjiang Province, China and he received a Bachelor of Art from Harbin Normal University in China, and went on to receive his Master of Fine Arts degree from Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts, China.
In 1992, he became a lecturer in the Department of Oil Painting at TianJina Academy of Fine arts, and later a Professor at the Academy of Art Design, at TianJina Academy of Fine Arts. Yingzhao Liu has exhibited in American, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Macau, England, and Japan. Numerous paintings have been auctioned off by Christie's in Hongkong.
