We are pleased to present Bi Yuan Cheng’s fourth solo exhibition at The Avenue Gallery, opening on September 15th, 2016. In this series, Bi continues to capture the beauty of the Canadian landscape with calligraphic brushwork, mastery of light and refined use of colour.
Cheng was born in 1957 and raised in Jinan, China. Under the guidance and encouragement of his father, he began practicing art at age five. At age eleven, Cheng was mentored by one of China's most prestigious art professors who further developed Cheng’s skills in oil and watercolour. Cheng’s rigorous training continued at ZiangXi Art University. Upon graduation, Cheng worked as a sculptor and painted large-scale murals. In 1987, Cheng was recognized with the title of “Chinese Art Master” and two years later he was accepted into the prestigious Chinese Encyclopedia of Art. Cheng has lived in Canada since 1990.
