At the age of seven he had already won international honors in West Germany for his art.Yamin's father was a sea captain and his mother was a professor at the Suzhou Art Institute. Suzhou is a traditional art center and is known as the Venice of the East. He developed his deep interest in art from his mother. His bold creativity was an inheritance from his father. Yamin's awareness of the world of art burst upon him when his father presented a painting to the little boy which he had brought home from Europe.Like many of the other leading Yunnan School artistÃ¢ÂÂs, Yamin's obsessive motivation came from his fascination with the Dunhuang Caves in Western China. The caves, in the Shanxi Province, are famous as the home of many master pieces from a series of great Chinese Dynasties which were painted on the walls of the caves. Yamin took a large measure of his personal inspiration from works from the Tang Dynasty whose artists painted in simple elegant lines. Some of these paintings have a Matisse like quality. There is an international as well as a distinctive Chinese quality about the Dunhuang art because the caves were positiioned on the famous East West Silk Route, made famous by Marco Polo.Yamin admires all the great artists; particularly Van Gogh, Gaugin and Picasso. Like Monet, the water lily is his favorite flower.
