Xiaoyang Galas was born in 1973 Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China and is now currently residing in France. In 1993-95 she studied at the Department of Oil Painting of the Academy of Arts of Sichuan, China. Then in 1998 Commenced post-graduate studies majoring in Chinese Art History and Art Critic at Sichuan Fine Arts Academy which she then attained in 2001. After 6 years studying Chinese art history and oil painting and living in France 7 years, she now has her own art studio to create her pieces of art.
Galas realised at the age of 16 that art was her way, her expression and passion. For Xiaoyang, in the beginning is God. The young woman somehow transposes her faith into her painting. For her, the inspiration is diving; the work that results, the exploration of forms, abstract or not, is necessarily human. She gives preference to the beauty of the world to the detriment of the grief and blackness that affect the human being and his environment. Her paintings share that beauty while displaying themselves harmoniously.
"There is so much darkness and sadness in this world. I do not want to paint the dark side ... I would like my art contributes to the beauty of this world, it is a message of peace and love ... For me, life is a journey with a purpose; art is a game with meaning.”
Galas’ paintings have been collected in public and private all around the world and she has also had many solo exhibitions in France, Switzerland and other European countries.
