Yage Guo 郭雅格

Born in 1998

London and Shanghai based artist

A significant degree of philosophy and atmosphere works its way into Yage Guo’s paintings, which centre on the ephemeral aspects of existence. Though obviously working in a physical medium and depicting physical objects and instances, Yage’s work is only materialistic in a sense that these more ethereal points of focus require a medium for them to carry through. So we may see flowers, faces and semi-abstract snapshots of life, but it’s their inherent fragility and brief poignancy that is held aloft.⁠
