Following on from Zao Wou-Ki and Chu Teh-Chun, Wang Yan-Cheng brought to light a new pictorial style known as lyrical abstraction. This Franco-Chinese artist wants to “leave his life on the canvas”, so his works are focused on the dialogue between people, the universe and nature. This technique of layering up solid blocks of colour, which gives a particularly thick and lively texture to the canvas and an extreme depth to the image, is very characteristic of him. At the age of 29, Wang Yan-Cheng settled in France, where he hoped to perfect his style. With perseverance, the Chinese artist gradually made his way and built on his own style. With a solid artistic background from China and unlimited creativity, the painter soon attracted attention. In 2002, he was appointed Vice President of IACA at the UNESCO International Association of Plastic Arts and became a real international mediator for culture. Having been celebrated for years in both Asia and Europe, his works receive the recognition they deserve. His meeting with Chu Teh-Chun and his paintings with their vibrant, fluctuating rendering truly inspired Wang Yan-Cheng. He fully structures the composition of his works through the gradual use of strong colour and pays little attention to line. His very personal artistic style is instantly recognisable. His themes focus on the dialogue between people, the universe and nature. This technique of layering up colours, which is very personal to him, gives his images an impression of relief and extreme depth.
