Week 8: Artist Conversation – Yu Ji

This week I had the opportunity to observe the art gallery of Yu Ji. Yu is a currently a student at Cal State Long Beach and last week she showcased a varieties of her oil painting artworks. She also painted many landscapes of the school itself and the city of Long Beach. Yu’s oil paintings were very vibrant and colorful. She depicted human figures at the beach in a peaceful environment. Oil painting is a new style for Yu. She is more comfortable with the style of hybrid and sketching. Yu was born in China, so she uses many cultural elements into her work. It is a combination of both western and eastern styles.
