Lin Yusi (born in Guangdong in 1978) is an outstanding Chinese brush painter, who attended national exhibitions of Chinese paintings and Chinese brush paintings and won awards for many times. His personal album "Collection of Yusi" was published by the People‘s Fine Arts Publishing House in 2007.
Lin Yusi is fond with Chinese classical myths and legends and likes Chinese classical literature such as the Strange Stories and the Anecdotes about Spirits and Immortals. Since 2016, he has used his night time to create a series of small white sketches that capture his curiosity and love of mysterious and unknown things such as monks and monsters.
For Lin Yusi, the unique painting form of "white sketch" is an "alpine" painting that "does not apply color but is brilliant." In his works of white sketches, the lines of "Ancient Silk Touring" and "Cloud Flowing Water" are full of charm and rich expressiveness. The graceful and magical world of the immortal beings and animals shows the artist's extraordinary art with the rich images of leisurely immortal monks, slender and elegant dress streamers, wandering clouds and rolling waves of vast waves. Imagination.
Guangdong Art Museum has been committed to the research and promotion of contemporary cutting-edge young artists. The exhibition is the first exhibition of "Space 7 - Youth Art Nomination Exhibition of Guangdong Museum of Art" series, featuring 116 small sketch works of young artist Lin Yusi, which are divided into "Exotic", "Mystery", "Human" These three sections present the artist's deep fascination with the traditions and cultural traditions of Chinese painting.
