About the Artist

Xu Baiyi is honorary board member of Jilin Fine Arts Association, of Northeastern Normal University Fine Arts College and Jilin University Institute of Technology Academic Committee member. He is also Director of the Institute of Chinese Classical Painting and full-time professor at Jilin University Fine Arts Department. Meanwhile, Mr.Xu is also vice president of the Chinese Artists in the USA.

Xu Baiyi is an expert in Chinese classical paintings of still-life, animal and scenery. His main subjects are Changbai Mountain and Songliao Basin. He is a pioneer about “technological art” discussions". Thanks to his travels in North America, Europe and Asia he masters five categories in paintings: realistic illustration of a concrete idea; abstract illustration of an abstract idea; half realistic and half abstract illustration in traditional Chinese paintings; abstract illustration demonstrating a concrete idea and realistic illustration demonstrating an abstract idea.

He promotes the creative revival of classical paintings while adhering to the spirit of Chinese traditional art. His works feature from both traditional and modern artistic elements. Utilising realistic forms of expression to demonstrate a metaphysical sublime realm that cannot be seen but only felt, he creates a truly a new genre of abstract painting. A quiet and lyrical atmosphere as well as comfortable beyond invisible.
