Wou-ki Zao is named as the 'Representative of Western contemporary lyrical abstractionism'. He emphasied 'my picture should breath together with my heart.' In early years, Zao clamied that 'traditional Chinese arts are mostly dead and stiff', and with that in mind, he came to Oaris to see all western masters such as Van Gogh Francois Boucher, and Henri Matisse. However, he realised that the representation of estern elemets in those western artworks only floats on the surface; In other words, it did not consider the profound meaning within a painting. He then rediscovered Chinese philosiy in his art. Visual eements such as Chinese calligraphy, dark and light ink, the composistion of traditional Chinese landscape, all contribute to deliver the idea of 'the universe and people are all existed simultaneously' in his abstract and concentrate works.
