The Avenue Gallery is pleased to announce their eighth solo exhibition with Bi Yuan Cheng, Coastal Forests. In this series, Cheng captures the beauty of the Canadian landscape with calligraphic brushwork, mastery of light and refined use of colour.
Bi Yuan Cheng was born and raised in Jinan, China. Under the guidance of his father, Cheng began practicing art at age five, and at age eleven, was mentored by one of China's most respected art professors. Cheng’s rigorous training continued at ZiangXi Art University. Upon graduation, he worked as a sculptor and painted large-scale murals. In 1987, Cheng was recognized as a “Chinese Art Master” and two years later was accepted into the prestigious Chinese Encyclopedia of Art. Cheng has lived in Canada since 1990.
