The Chinese have for centuries been acknowledged as the masters of the pyrotechnic arts, and it is therefore not surprising that the nation’s fine artists have turned their hand to this subject.
Below is the work of acclaimed artist Daniel H. Yeh.
Daniel H. Yeh, or Shih Hsuing is the son of two nations noted for their prowess with fireworks. His mother is Japanese and his father, an eminent surgeon, Chinese. He decided early in life to devote his efforts to painting and in his youth travelled the world visiting as many galleries and museums as he could.
Despite the early days as a typical ‘struggling artist’ Daniel has achieved considerable success and his paintings are sold all over the world, although often not attributed. He also now runs a studio to develop the talents of younger artists, often by reproducing the works of old masters with astonishing accuracy. This gives the student a unique insight into the original artist’s creative talent and technique.
As well as fireworks, Daniel’s themes reflect his interest in world heritage and include paintings of many well-known landmarks, buildings, ancient monuments and so on, and works focusing on heritage topics.
