Yeh Chu-Sheng was born in Kaohsiung in 1946, and first graduated from the art department of National Taiwan University of Arts, then the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Madrid, Spain in 1977.
In Yeh’s works, he investigates the relationship between humans and nature through natural elements like seeds, the ocean, etc. He is also the first artist in Taiwan to explore realistic ecological problems with art. He specializes in dynamic drawing with oil paints and using mix media to create and stresses on skills like presenting texture, muscle lines, imagery signs and their symbolic meanings. Over and above a response to politics or a connection with aesthetics, Yeh’s work does in fact contain with broader ideas. That is particular true of the “Order Nonorder”series, which reflects environmental consciousness and discusses at some length the essence of culture.
The chaotic picture that Yeh Chu-Sheng presents on canvas is like a cycle of life’s beginning: organic, decayed, destruction, rebirth, rise and fall. His usage of colors tends to be calm, plain, and inward, with few lights of bright colors. In recent years the language of his work seems both simple and complex with abundant color, representing a deeper introspective reflection.
Yeh’s work was exhibited in National History Museum of Taiwan, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Japan The Ueno Royal Museum, Shanghai Art Museum and National Art Museum of China. His works were collected by Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts
