Siyuan’s work captures on canvas the authentic spirit of China using a ‘Western’ brush. Meticulously recreating poetic Chinese imagery with acrylic and oils, and using self-taught techniques which fuse together Eastern and Western styles, Siyuan’s art reflects her own journey. Hailing from the Wu region, one of the most culture-rich areas of China, she has lived in and travelled across much of Europe. Please visit the website to find out more about the artist and the exhibition.
Siyuan said, “My journey has provided me with the inspiration to invent, develop and create this unique expression, an expression in paint that I am delighted to share for the first time in Digbeth.”
The exhibition is free to enter and peruse. Bay Leaf really wants to encourage local artists to exhibit at their restaurant to celebrate Digbeth’s incredible energy and creativity. If you are an artist wanting to use the free gallery space at the restaurant, please visit their website to contact Managing Director Aftab.
