Born in 1963, M Yao is an experienced artist with a distinct voice and style.
At barely 20 years old, Mr. Yao knew he needed to express himself online. In viewing his works, we are immediately struck by the delicate disruption of the image. The subjects, abundant and occupying most of the pictorial space, are not rendered with their values.
They seem to merge with the movement of lines of support due to the skeins of labyrinthine ribs of the granules. Despite everything, the eye must be exercised: the subjects are often more elusive than assertive - warm colors, led by yellow, alternated with cold tones.
Mr. Yao dedicated his life to art and had his first exhibition in 1991 where he received second prize in the national competition “Peinture Tremplin” of the SIFCA COMAFRIQUE foundation. Since then, his works have received numerous distinctions. In 1995, he received a second prize in the national competition "Peinture Tremplin" and in 1998 he received special mention from the PANAFCOM Foundation. In 2019 and 2020, he was a finalist in the Art Revolution international competition in Taipei, Taiwan.
