    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.

    繼趙無極和朱德群後,王衍成已列入著名的華裔法國抒情抽象畫大師之一。以前輩成功開創的流派作為基礎,王衍成進一步深化結合中西繪畫傳統,創造出令人讚嘆的抽象表現主義風格的中國山水畫,他的作品主要探討結構和可塑性。 〈春〉散發著非凡的活力,藝術家通過灑脫傳神的筆觸描繪出的複雜精妙的樹木和山谷,這幅畫體現了王衍成如何使用不同的媒體在畫布上表現其獨特的質感和立體感。王衍成至今仍活躍於法國和中國,其作品曾於世界各地展出和被廣泛地收藏。
