Liu Yang comes from the north of China and has degrees in food science and economic management. After working both as a reporter and director in newspapers and television he settled on a long-standing ambition, sculpting. Now he has the same high profile and reputation he achieved in his previous career.
With his emphasis on public art as a vital form of communication and societal wellbeing, he has gained an enviable reputation as a leader in his field. Many of his works are highlighted by contrasts, exploring the relationship between materials such as soft rope and hard stone and underlining the interaction between colour and geometric forms.
"Colour and texture, balance and soul. Two forms that come together in harmony."
