A Century Pioneer – the Exhibition of Wu Dayu

Opening Date: May 22, 2012

Venue: C4 Gallery, Redtory, Guangzhou

Organizer: Redtory·Culture & Art Organization




Wu Dayu (1903 – Jan. 1988), born in Yicheng Town, Yixing City, is an excellent Chinese oil painter, art educationalist and one of the founders of Chinese modern painting. Mr. Wu is also a pioneer for modern abstract painting as well as a master of abstract painting. As one of the first few oil painters who studied abroad resulting in remarkable achievements, Wu is also a founder of modern art education in China. However, Wu has never been paid due attention to by the mainstream art circles. Anyway, his devotion to promoting western modernism ideas on fine arts has influenced a generation of painters. Modernism masters such as Wu Guanzhong, Zhao Wuji, Zhu Dequn and Zhao Chunxiang, who enjoy high reputation both domestic and abroad nowadays, all used to be his students and had been enlightened by him. Wu Dayu’s art largely originated from the schools of French modern painting. By persisting in the concepts of modern art, Wu integrated abstract skills with his personalized pursuit of oriental implication, and created pure sense of beauty flowing like the rhythm of music, which he concluded as “Shixiang (manner and posture)” himself. Because of his willingly pursuit of “Shixiang”, Wu Dayu could create works independent to the trends of his age, showing a distinguished personality.
