Overview
"the flower is so dominant in my paintings; they are a universal and unifying symbol for peace and prosperity."

Born in 1962 , Zhuang Hong Yi is one of China's most influential artists. Characterised by daringly-bold colour palettes, Hong-yi's sophisticated, repetitive, and precise floral motifs both reflect his Chinese background and integrate a Western allure as a universal symbol of prosperity and optimism.

 

Zhuang's well known and highly collected Flowerbed works are crafted from delicate pieces of painted rice paper, which he has bent and folded into hundreds of tiny buds that subtly shift colours as you move your body and eyes from one side of the work to the other. The floral hybrids evince an artist with genuine sensibility - the painstaking process of folded rice-paper layered with acrylic and oil paint belies an almost ascetic level of discipline. 

 

Zhuang also implements a more traditional painterly approach through his Landscape works  that bear influence of Impressionism and other Euro-American artistic practices in which he applies acrylic in heavily gestural impasto with rice-paper flowers. Working with a freedom of style, his daring strokes of bright colours are expressive and unconfined. Colours melting together and paint dripping down make the canvas blossom under the eye: appearing to move and thrive with the viewer, a beautifully defiant natural symbol in the face of aggressive global urbanisation.

 

Over the years, Zhuang has created a significant broad following across the globe with exhibitions throughout continents. The artist has been the subject of multiple museum exhibitions and his work is held in numerous esteemed public and private collections: spreading positivity worldwide.
