Jade Yu-Wen Lee Exhibition (October 1996)

Picture of Jade Yu-Wen LeeProfile

Mrs. Yu-Wen Lee came originally from Taiwan and has lived in Hawai`i for seven years. She started to learn traditional Chinese painting at the age of 17, and has studied with many well-known artists in Taiwan. Lately, she has benefited greatly from the exclusive instruction of Fu Chuan-fu, a great master in both traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy. Mr. Fu accepted Mrs. Lee as his last disciple before his retirement. Mrs. Lee not only has had the good fortune of being exposed to different schools and teachings, she has also been able to fuse the various styles of these different schools of art into a distinctive style of her own.

Mrs. Lee has held exhibitions in Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Hawai`i. Her last exhibition was held in Seoul, Korea, in May, 1996. She is scheduled to have an exhibition with one of her teachers in Taipei, Taiwan, at the end of this coming December. She will also have another exhibition at the Honolulu Academy of Arts in the spring of 1997. She is now teaching two Chinese brush painting classes at the Honolulu Academy of Arts. She also offers workshops at the University of Hawai`i at Manoa on Saturdays. In addition, she has been actively involved in promoting traditional Chinese art by giving public lectures and demonstrations in Hawai`i.
