Lu Schaper

Around Midnight

I was born in Shanghai, the Paris of the East.

 At the age of sixteen, I entered the Academy of the Fine Arts in Shanghai University, majoring in Western painting. Subsequently, I studied traditional Chinese painting in the Central Institute of Fine Arts in Beijing.






In the mid nineties I came to Malaysia and Singapore to work as a free-lance professional artist.  I held three solo art exhibitions and took part in numerous combined exhibitions. In addition, I was interviewed by Singapore newspapers, radio and television, and the Alliance Francaise Singapore.




 My first brochure, "Art of Rosina Yang", was published in June 1998.  In the period 1999-2002, I was concentrating on a series of paintings inspired by the Shanghai of the twenties/thirties.

A new chapter in my life was opened when my husband and I moved from Singapore to Rouen, France in August 2002.






Experiencing the works of the great German expressionists in the European musea late 2003 has had a dramatic influence on my style, and led to the birth of what we call Shanghai Expressionism.

I was honoured to be the invited artist at the regional exhibition in Rouen-Bonsecours in March 2003, and was interviewed in the regional newspaper Paris-Normandie twice.

In June 2004, I had the opportunity to exhibit my works in the heart of Paris. In November 2004 we moved to Holland, and I held a solo exhibition in Amsterdam in 2005.





My works are collected by local and overseas art lovers. Examples are the Hong Kong Chinese University, Plum Blossoms Art Gallery Hong Kong, The Artist Publication Taiwan, Dover University USA, the Singapore Art Supply, Criterion Singapore and the Singapore Catalyst Technology Centre.
