WANG Yu
Artiste peintre

About

My artistic approach is focused on the complexity of human nature.

In 2007, I began testing the process of pouring a mixture of medium and acrylic varnish on my characters, which allows them to have a materialized flesh rendering, palpable, translucent, and shiny.

In 2014, I got the precious support of a leading American paint manufacturer (Golden Paints), who developed a “skin tone pouring medium” for me.
