  • Celebrated all over the world for his quixotic portrayals of the fair and feminine, Hu Yong Kai's remarkable openness to absorbing new penchants and influences has delighted international audiences for nearly twenty years. Imbued with the Oriental tradition and vivid ethnic colours and spiritedness, Hu's paintings are at the same time contemporary in expression, inspiring not only fellow artists, but also a multitude of individuals within the inter-disciplinary fields of film, television, fashion and interior design. Viewing the paintings of Hu Yong Kai, one is immediately drawn to his depiction of female figures and his ability to utilise different elements from both Chinese and Western traditions. Cubist faces, Fauvist contours, colours of folk art and classical brushwork, all executed with precision and spontaneity, have yielded a modern, unique concept of elegance, charisma and beauty.
  • Hu's attention to the female subject characterises what he makes of the female world in a wider historical and geographical context. The world created by Hu Yong Kai is feminine, gentle, introverted and peaceful. His paintings have no place for the image of the adult male as he seems to go out of his way to abandon the natural or social attributes of masculinity, extroversion and eagerness to excel above others. With the classic charm of a lady from the old Eastern world and the exciting allure of a woman in modern times, the Oriental beauty of Hu Yong Kai has become a symbol of contemporary aesthetics that is received with universal endearment. Born in 1945, Hu entered the Central Academy of Fine Art (Beijing) at the early age of 15 to study traditional painting.
  • In the last decade, Hu Yong Kai has had over twenty solo exhibitions in Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Hong Kong, Chicago, Los Angeles, Taos in New Mexico, Tokyo, Leverkusen in Germany, Singapore as well as other cities worldwide. He has participated in numerous art expositions in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore, and garnered several awards and prizes to his name. His works are kept in the collections of China's National Museum of Fine Art (Beijing), Shanghai Art Museum, the Hong Kong Museum of Art and Hong Kong Cultural Museum, amongst a world following of private collectors.
  • Biography of Hu Yongkai: Male, born in 1945, is a native of Beijing. He is currently a member of the Chinese Artists Association, Hong Kong Artists Association, executive member of the World Chinese Artists Association, Hong Kong Asian Artists Association, deputy dean of Beijing Hai Hua Gui Art Institute and chairman of Hong Kong New Arts Association. Hu attended the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing in his early years. Afterwards, he taught at the Fine Arts Institute at Shanghai University. In 1988, he moved to Hong Kong. Four years later, he migrated to U.S. where he was given the right of permanent residence for his outstanding expertise in art. Now he resides in Hong Kong, Beijing and Shenzhen.
  • In the contemporary Chinese art circle, Hu does not follow paths treaded by others but forms his unique style on his solid foundation of traditional painting skills. He succeeds to infuse the charisma of the centuries old Chinese culture with the forceful expressions of the West by his brilliant matching of lines and colors in his paintings. By reflecting upon the traditional Chinese art from a modern perspective, Hu achieves a kind of individuality that carries a sense of modernity with uncommon oriental charm. In the last twenty years, Hu has held several dozens of solo exhibitions in Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Hong Kong, Chicago, Los Angeles, Taos in New Mexico, Tokyo, Leverkusen in Germany, Singapore as well as many other countries. He has also participated in numerous large-scale art expositions in China, Hong Kong, etc. He has won many prizes. Quite a number of his works are in the collections of the China Art Gallery, Shanghai Art Gallery, Hong Kong Museum of Art and many other established art institutions as well as private collectors. His works are published in his solo albums.   Mini Biography He is member of the Chinese Artists Association, the standing honorary member of the HongKong Association of Asian Artists, chairman of the New Fine Art Association of HongKong, director of China people’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, vice president of Beijing Hai Huagui Art Academy, honorary chairman of Beijing Celebrities Painting and Calligraphy Institute.
  • Soon after his graduation, the talented young artist found himself working as an art director at Shanghai Animation Studios where he developed his unique sensibility of formal aesthetics. In 1985, Hu left the field of media production and took up a teaching position in Shanghai University's College of Fine Art. Leaving China in 1988 when contemporary artists were slavishly emulating Western pop art and Cubism, he moved to Hong Kong in search of an alternative vision. Four years later, while he had newly emigrated to the United States where he was granted the right of permanent residence with his outstanding expertise in art, his interest lay not in his new home, but back in the Far East. This fascination with the East took on a new visual excitement when he visited Bali for the first time in 1995, an experience which continues to influence his work today.
