Chinese pop art has been so popular that it has become synonymous with contemporary art in China, yet it is not at all representative of the essence of Chinese art. For this reason, a return to the true tradition of Chinese aesthetics is seen by many as a welcome development. Ye Jian Qing, one of the finest young painters to have come out of China recently, is one of those who have retained the principles of Chinese painting in his art. He fuses traditional and modern aesthetics to create oil paintings that resemble ink and wash art. His subjects frequently include China's old and new landscapes. This book is a catalogue of Ye Jian Qing's exhibition of paintings, his second to be held in Singapore. It includes two essays on perspective - one by art historian Zhaoxun on optical perspective in Chinese art and in the other, Ye Jian Qing writes about his views on contemporary Chinese art. In English and Chinese.
