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?"

"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 itself."
"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 "Transformism", 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 painting itself.”
