Fu Yi Yao is the fifth daughter of
the grand master Fu Bao Shi, who has been called one of the two "rocks" of China
(the other is Qi Bai Shi). Now residing in Japan, Ms Fu is a renowned artist with great
inheritance of talent.
in Nanjing in 1947, Ms. Fu did not consider painting as a career until 1970. She has
mastered very diversified areas including landscape and people, and is particular famed
for her paintings on Buddhism and festivities. Stemmed from her father's heritage, her
works are noticeably oversized with highly sophisticated details. At the famous temple, her
painting commemorating the 1400th birthday of a Japanese high monk spans two sections of
the wall, each at 200 x 600 cm.
