About the artwork
This semi-abstract painting by Liu Zhengyong features the form of a man, who is rendered in a highly stylized manner. Liu captures the contours of the man’s body through bold outlines, reflecting the softness and the wholeness of the human form. Inspired by the Expressionist movement, the artist renders the man using a vivid colour palette that mixes warm greens with cool purples, imbuing the work with a vibrant sense of energy. The evocative images of his subject starkly contrasts the vacant background, illustrating the force of human expression that is the bridge between our emotions and spirit.
