The art of Chinese printmaker Chen Yuqiang is positioned somewhere between tradition and modern style, between East and West - between Orient and Occident. The result is a unique style that appeals to Westerners as well as Oriental people.

This journey between two different worlds is manifested in two different ways in Che Yuqiang's artwork - in his subjects and in the techniques that he uses.
Chen Yuqiang works in the traditional Chinese woodblock style. And the Western method of silkscreen is another of his favorite printing methods. Recently the artist has even begun to combine both techniques in one single oeuvre.
And finally Chen Yuqiang's wandering in two worlds is expressed in his subjects. Traditional Chinese nature scenes with birds are among his favorite motifs. But also landscapes with some typical, Chinese landmarks like a pavillion are frequently to be found.
Other prints look like they want to tell some mythologicals stories from an era half history half legend. These specific designs look strange for Westerners and you want to know more about the background.
Chen Yuqiang wrote several books:
And the following book was published about the artist and his works:
Chen Yuqiang's Water Coloured Silkscreen
The artist works in woodblock and in silkscreen technique. Recently Chen Yuqiang has begun to mix both techniques.
