Inspired by nature and literature, Shangyu interplay between humanity and landscape, blending elements from both realms. Her paintings celebrate the unity of living beings, delving into the dynamic energy pulsating through humanity and the botanical world. Shangyu’s art is imbued with positive and
spontaneous energy, reflecting the essence present in every mortal being. Shangyu employs concealed hues derived from natural light to depict the vitality and resilience inherent in nature.
Her works are the visual narrative that weaves together human hope, vitality, and the ethereal allure of landscapes. Shangyu’s paintings are the celebration of life’s inherent value, highlighting the intimate and often overlooked connections between humanity and the natural world. They are also the invitation for the viewer to explore and appreciate the intrinsic value of
life and the deep bond we share with our natural surroundings.
