We are very pleased to display the works for Yu-Kun Yang at Les Roches.
Yu-Kun Yang was born in Hupeh, China, and started to study art at the Hong Kong Art School. Given his natural talent for art, his father wanted Yu-Kun to study at one of the best art schools and sent him to Germany. It was there where he received his Master Degree in Fine Arts in 1963 from the Berlin Academy for Plastic Arts studying under Professor Hann Trier.
Yu-Kun has remained an abstract artist even in today’s post modernist era. While many artists in recent years have returned to realism, often to study the fabricated nature of media imagery, a few artists continue to probe the terrains of abstraction. Yu-Kun is still exhibiting the pre-1960’s abstract art movement in different ways today, which were epitomised by Kandinsky, Gorky and DeKooning.
In October of 2005, we hosted a weekend party for Yu-Kun and his European friends. His friends are artists, photographers, gallery owners and art collectors and included Peter Klasen, Benjamin Katz, Françoise Besson-Brosset, Dr Horst Appel, Angelika Gilberg, Tom Sommerlatte and Eva Sommerlatte. Some of these artists signed their own catalogues and books which are on display in the Les Roches library.
