Liu Yuan-Shou

 

Liu Yuan-Shou Biography

Liu Yuan-Shou was born in Beijing in 1967. Liu is now a professional artist. He is also a member of the Chinese Oil Painting Artists Association and the Beijing Chinese Artists Association which are nationally recognized organization for artists.

 

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.
