Xie Yongsheng


Artist Biography

“Keep your childlike innocence and inspiration will inadvertently find you.”

Unlike many contemporary artists, Xie Yongsheng’s Tai Chi-inspired characters creates a world of harmony and balance.

His fashionable stylized series of works range from theatrical to famous icons and modern portraits. He paints terracotta soldiers, opera singers, political leaders, and figures filled with inner peace. Most of the characters in his works are created in a relaxed and humorous artistic language with the relics of Chinese ancient rhyme. If you look closely, you will also find hidden Tai Chi symbols in their eyes. The black and white colors signify mutual dependence of all things in nature.

Tracing back to the roots of Tai Chi is the artist’s love of martial arts from childhood, the elegance of dancing like a crane. “The ultimate effort is to be fluid and effortless like water.”

Tai Chi is Xie’s way of life and inspiration for art.

As a professional artist and disciple of the Chen Style Tai Chi Wangjia Boxing, Xie now lives in Songzhuang, Beijing.
