A skilled print-maker as well as a painter and draughtsman, Du Yingqiang is known for his landscapes and pastoral scenes depicting his native southern China. Showing the progression of the seasons and the natural rhythms of daily country life, his works are characterised by a crisp and exact technique. At the same time they have a strong poetic quality no doubt resulting from his strong attachment to the region. Typically, Du Yingqiang's landscapes of high mountains or river valleys are executed in traditional Chinese ink and wash, with contrasting vivid bursts of colour such as peach blossoms or autumn foliage in the foreground.
Du Yingqiang was born in Chenghai County, Guangdong Province, in 1939 and showed a talent for painting from early childhood. His prints and paintings have been shown widely in China and selected for exhibitions abroad. Du is a member of the Chinese Artists Association and the Chinese Print Artists Association, a committee member of the Guangdong Artists Association, and President of the Swatow Painting Academy.
