With an early ambition to become a Western-style painter, Yang Chihung gained his footing in the competitive New York art scene in the 80s. However, a sprouted seed brought from home inspired a new style, and triggered the Chinese soul inside him. From Taiwan to New York, from Venice to Shanghai, the trajectory of abstract expressionist painter Yang Chihung resonates with that of the rising Chinese contemporary art. It is a journey to the West and back.
