Yaohua Yan is a professional water colour artist, who immigrated to Toronto from Shanghai in 2003. His paintings were selected by CSPWC Open Water multiple times and he won several awards. He is a graduate of the East China Normal University and he taught Watercolour painting and graphic design at the University. His loose style of painting expresses his unique interpretation of the scenery and city scapes. He uses strong and colourful hues to outline the different light effects which are crucial to the unity of a painting. The manipulation of shadows also contributes to the integrity of his paintings.
