Wang Yancheng is one of the most recognized Franco-Chinese masters of lyrical abstraction, after Zao Wou-ki and Chu Teh-chun. Building on the genre his predecessors pioneered, he further elaborated on the assimilation of Western and Chinese traditional aesthetics. Wang Yancheng creates stunning Chinese landscape paintings in a style with a lineage from Abstract Expressionism. His work focuses on construction and plasticity. 'Fraîcheur des bois et des vallées' exudes extraordinary vibrancy. In his sweeping, expressive brushstrokes, the artist depicts the vivacity and complexity of the trees and valleys. This painting illustrates how Wang Yancheng uses different media to give his canvases a unique texture and three-dimensionality. The artist still works and lives between France and China, his works have been extensively collected and exhibited worldwide.
