Min Yiyao
Portrait #49

Oil on Canvas
150 x 120cm

Enquire


Longing, distant eyes, lined with smudged kohl above red, sensual lips pursed in deep thought- Min Yi Yao imbues every composing stroke of his subject’s face with a delicate femininity, capturing every curve and shadow enveloping her reverie. With his signature unusual wild strokes, the artist not only captures elusive detail, but also gives the figure a haze of white noise, impressing disengagement from reality and surreal overtones, in spite of the realistic detailing. The muted grays used add to the feeling of distance, contrasted by the bold and sensuous red of her lips that inject the deadened fade with vibrant life. The contrasting colors, strokes and tangibility come together to form a striking portrayal of the transmutable human emotion, both intriguing and resonating with all who view it.

  • +Artist Bio

    Born in Xi'an, Shanxi Province and graduating from Xi'an Fine Art Academy. Min Yiyao's figurative works have been featured in major exhibitions in China, with solo and group exhibitions spanning Beijing, Xiamen, Shanghai, Nanjing, Taipei, Belgium, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Singapore. In Min's works, the language of his technique draws the viewer in rather that the image itself. He alludes to fauvist influences and a tinge of surrealism. The artist fascinates the viewer with a reversal of the norms expected of a portraiture piece.
