Painting workshop with Yu Ji
3 day painting workshop with visiting artist Yu Ji
This is a 3 day painting workshop with visiting artist Yu Ji. Yu Ji comes to Tampa by way of Long Beach, California to share his knowledge of fundamental drawing, color, and composition.
As a studio painter, Yu Ji concentrates on a figurative approach to painted form and experiments with pictorial compositions exploring images of contemporary urban life. In his early years of art study, Yu Ji was fortunate to study privately with some of China’s most respected painters while surviving Mao’s Cultural Revolution (1966-76) as a sent-down youth laboring in a remote mountain village. After the Cultural Revolution, he received an opportunity to study drawing and painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, which prepared him with a solid foundation and led him to his first teaching position at the Academy in its pre-college program. By pursuing his education in American graduate school, he was influenced by both contemporary American figurative painters and several New York formalist artists whose teaching challenged him to deepen his understanding of pictorial expression and establish an open perspective for professional studio practice.
