WATERCOLOUR OF LI YAJUN

21 - 31 May 2010

 Born in Bejing, China, Mrs Li Yajun displayed a talent and interest in fine art from a very early age, which led to her joining the China Central Academy of Fine Arts aged 14.

She joined the army in 1969 as a professional artist, concentrating mostly on engraving in those early years.

Since 1994, she has worked in watercolours and shown a particular talent for portraiture, although animals, still life and scenery also feature in this collection. Her work has been acclaimed in both her home country and internationally.
