Xiaoyang Galas is a Chinese artist living and working in France. She studied Fine Art (Painting) and received a master's degree in Chinese Art History at the Sichuan Academy of Fine Art in China.
In her paintings Xiaoyang seeks to bring together the East and the West. Her technique is often done with mixed materials such as: acrylic paint, oil paint, bits of paper and plant matter. This mix gives the impression of patching. The artist is not afraid to mix colours and honeyed acids. She also uses Chinese, French and English characters and frequently uses text from the Bible.
For the artist, there is so much darkness and sorrow in this world that she no longer want to paint the dark side. She would like for her art to be a contribution to the beauty of this world, for it to be heart warming and for it to be a message of peace and love.
For her, life is a journey with a purpose, art is a game with meaning. She expresses the sole hope of being able to transmit a message of peace and love. Her gift is to magnify what is essential in life.
Xiaoyang Galas' artwork is held in private and public collections all over the world.
