FBA Emerging Artist Prize 2009

I explore the field of portraiture through this combination of realism and abstraction to express people’s inner thoughts.

Winner of  £5,000 Federation of British Artists Emerging Artist Prize, for artists age 18 – 28, Aishan Yu was born in Chongqing, China, but now lives and works in London. She has attended Sichuan Fine Arts Institute and Slade School of Fine Art. She won the Chinese New Generation Artist Award in 2004 and exhibited in the 2008 Threadneedle Prize exhibition.
 
Her oil paintings use photographic images, which focus on a balance of photographic realism and abstract textures.
