(B1949 Taiwan)

Taiwanese artist Chiu Ya Tsai specializes in portraits. In general Ya Tsai paints cultural figures or people of the bourgeois class, including poets, artists & professors, all located in places of classical beauty. Instead of just representing the facial expressions of the models, Chiu Ya Tsai focuses on their minds, which are refined by their cultural activities.

Besides being a painter, Chiu Ya Tsai is also an active writer who has published numerous novels in recent years. Chiu Ya Tsai has exhibited in many galleries and institutions including National China Art Gallery, Beijing, & the Shanghai Art Museum, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, & the American Cultural Centre.  He remains one of the most bankable stars of the Eastern art movement.
