As an avid reader, Walter Yu is extremely meticulous when he chooses his materials. He developed contemporary artistic elements and modern Chinese ideologies into his own painting language. His works are restrained and melancholic, and were crafted as his reading notes, like stories told in painting and drawing. His works represent his soulful landscapes with emotional moments and enigmatic mystery.
