The first episode of Chineseness features artist Yang Chihung. He was born in 1947 and has been creating relentlessly for almost 40 years. In school, Yang studied under established Taiwanese artists, like Liao Chi-Chun and Yang Sanglang and developed a solid foundation in oil painting. Having gained his footing in the competitive New York art scene in the 80s, Yang’s painting has travelled to all major cities around the world and has become a collector’s item for not only private collectors but also corporate companies, museums and galleries. This stylistic perfection has international critiques regarding him as the next coming to Zao Wou-Ki and Chu Teh-Chun and one of the most important Asian abstract artists today.
