Influenced by Western abstract art, especially the 'De Stijl' movement of paring-down basic visual elements to geometric forms, Liu Ye uses color configurations and Mondrian's grid-like patterns to paint his subjects, and then he sets them in China. In Olympic Girl, the artist paints a young girl with large moon-like face wearing a hairclip designed as the Olympic rings. The round forms of her body contrast with the rectangular grid-like patterns of the background, creating a playful and stimulating composition.

Born in Beijing in 1964, Liu Ye studied industrial design and mural painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts before moving to Germany to pursue an MFA at the Fine Arts University in Berlin. His work has been exhibited extensively in China and Germany, and is well represented in the Uli Sigg Collection of contemporary Chinese art in Switzerland. Best-known for his colorful cartoon like characters in playful, naughty adolescent scenes, the artist has conspicuously chosen to steer away from politics and focus his artwork on human emotions.
