Yu Youhan began engaging in abstract art in the 1980s. Yu’s greatest inspiration is Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, in which he believes his artistic practice is in line with Lao Tzu’s Tao or the Way. In 1988, his focus shifted toward Political Pop portrayals of Chairman Mao, executed with bright colors and exaggerated brushstrokes. After nearly two decades, he returned to abstraction with circular compositions that revisits his connection to spirituality and personal life.
