Several awards I don't know how and why I got them. Since I usually don't get
any rewards, so I ask myself:" Do awards really matter to a true artist?"
Thanks to lots of
collectors. Not able to list them here.

"I land my brush with the force of a giant rock splashing into the
ocean. I am not looking for a beautiful painting, but to express Life
"Painting is just like a stacking of
passions. Painting is a method of striping myself naked and facing the truth
of my inner emotion."
I invite the viewer to experience through my
paintings the joy of being alive right at this moment.
Originally from Shanghai, Yuming began studying
under the masters at a young age. After his BA from China, Yuming came to the
States and graduated from Sonoma State University with his MA in 1991. Working
in oils, pastels and Chinese/Sumi Watercolors, Yuming's work is a unique blend
of East meets West artistry. It is a style that Yuming refers to as
"Transism", in reference to the constantly evolving interests, which
include observations on modern life, a love of music, and an exploration of his
own unique heritage. "I paint to achieve balance and harmony. Once I reach
that, I will for sure break it”
“My art is just a channel, through it I invite
people to look the world differently, to feel new sensations, to arouse
emotions one dare not to have before.” Fascinated about the relationship
between art and music, Yuming always says: “I love to paint music! I invite the
viewer to listen to my painting rather than seeing”. “Emotion flows from line
to color to form. I feel music informs me how to paint more than the act of
Delacroix, Corot, Rembrandt, Toulos-Lautrec, BaDa, ShiTao, Xu Hui, Van Gogh, Wu
ChangShuo, Klimt, Escher and other immortal artists.
