Thank you
Known for his oil paintings, which were a blend of romanticism and realism, Chen Yifei (1946-2005) was very active in the painting circles both at home and abroad. Many of his oil paintings fetched high prices at Christie's, Sotheby's, and other auctions in New York, which showed the international recognition for the strong Oriental taste in his works. He was one of the first Chinese artists to bridge the gap between the art of China's Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) and Western contemporary art

    2. 2. Chen Yifei ( 陳逸飛 , 1946-2005) is a central figure in the development of Chinese oil painting and is one of China's most renowned contemporary artists. Chen Yifei was born in 1946 in Ningbo, in coastal Zhejiang Province. When he was a child, his family moved to Shanghai, where he was to study Russian artists and Socialist Realism, China's official art style at the time. In 1965 he graduated from the Shanghai College of Art.        In 1980 he became one of the first artists from the People's Republic of China permitted to work and study art in the United States. Chen Yifei, who often said he arrived with just $38 in his pocket, soon enrolled at Hunter College and found work as an art restorer. In 1983, even before he earned his master's degree at Hunter, his solo exhibition at the Hammer Galleries created a sensation by selling out in the first week. Later, he painted on contract for the Hammer Galleries. When Chen returned to China in 1990, he settled in Shanghai, where some critics say he turned increasingly commercial. Although he often traveled to Tibet and painted Impressionist landscapes in his native Zhejiang Province, he had also transformed himself into a style entrepreneur, decorating hotels, creating fashion brands and selling high-end clothing and chic home furnishings. He even oversaw one of the country's biggest modeling agencies.
