Born in Jiangsu province in 1968, Wang Yizhou has been living for more than 20 years in Shanghai. He studied successively at Huaiyin Normal University and Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts where he majored in oil painting. At a young age, Wang Yizhou studied Chinese calligraphy, traditional ink painting, and Chinese Classics. He was noted for his extensive study and research of the famous Chinese Literati painter Huang Binhong (1865-1955).
Wang Yizhou has spent more than thirty years studying the origins of Chinese civilization and philosophy guiding his work towards humanistic concepts expressed in simple lines and colors. In painting mountains, his preferred theme, the artist expresses the inner spirit of minimalism, solitude, and detachment. He infuses his pictorial language with the poetry of improvisation and imbues each of his paintings with a sense of vastness, depth, and stillness.
