Analysis of Su Yu’s Contemporary Oil Painting Style

Ziyu Liu


In the early 1980s numerous Chinese artists began to reflect on China’s cultural and social situation and express their feelings about life through their work. Thus, contemporary art in China took root. China’s contemporary art initially imitated modern art in Europe and the United States, merged it with Chinese culture, and then gradually explored its own artistic traits. Contemporary art has taken root and flourished in China after nearly half a century of growth. This paper focuses primarily on the analysis of Su Yu’s oil painting style and the presentation of contemporary art in his works.
