Tianhua Xu is a Chinese freelance artist and art director at Chiyan Workshop in Beijing.
The collection here presents a mixture of Chinese lore, games and fantasy art. I love the smooth and fine textures used in each painting. It gives an organic feel to the work. Even tree bark and splintered beams seem fluid. Xu’s color composition jumps from vibrant to pale and subtle, sometimes even earthy. A truly gifted artist, Xu’s paintings makes you want to touch them, or at the very least, find out the story behind them.
As usual, below you’ll find a choice selection of art with each image linking back to the artist’s gallery. Enjoy!
