Yu Demin Biography:
Yu Demin (Chinese name: 余德民; 1972 - ) is a contemporary Chinese painter born in Kaihua County, Zhejiang Province. He graduated from the China Academy of Art in 1995, which was jointly constructed by the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Education. He experiments with various painting styles and techniques, adeptly using color and lines to express emotions and ideas. This imbues his works with innovation and vitality. For example, sometimes he did not use traditional painting tools such as brushes or knives, but squeezed paint directly from the tube onto the canvas and outlined his work to delineate bold lines, giving his works a strong expressive power and infectivity. He is also known as the "Chinese Van Gogh" because he has created over two thousand self-portraits.

Yu Demin's works have been exhibited in numerous exhibitions in North America, Europe, and Asia, and he has become a highly acclaimed contemporary Chinese artist in the international art market. His works are known for their vivid colors, profound thoughts, and bold style, and are highly sought after by artists and collectors. They are collected by many important collectors and museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the China Art Museum in Shanghai, and the Chinese Consulate General in Germany.
