Artist Biography - Pu Yu

His name translates as Simple Rain. This is quite significant as in many levels express his ethos. In China, the greatest representation of Goodness is water and the representation of Angles are the clouds. In this case, the rain is always a blessing from Heaven naturally bestowed on all people equally and fairly. A quiet man who has seen a very significant change in his hometo...wn where before history and culture were part of his life, all changed in the past 40 years with the so called Chinese Progress destroyed his old village, and forced his parents and family to migrate to a City that he still finds difficult to accept. In his view a short term insensitive solution that has transformed and some say destroyed the cultural fiber of modern China.

Pu Yu , is still one of the few ones that has not succumbed by the greed and materialism that has overcome in China. He still has his feet and pallet firm on the traditions of China.

His devotion to art and Nature is very present on all his works. He also believes that some of the treasures of Life , lies in all capacity to be tolerant and careful to all beings equally and fairly , just as the rain.
