    Yuan Yuan's works are representational, and are always themed with figures. If we say that her work depicts drama, then she is always the drama of the heroine. Except a handful of static self-portraits and single portraits, Yuan Yuan's figure paintings are mostly composed of a man and women, and with plots. 

    However, it is surprising that, in the Yuan Yuan's paintings, we almost do not see everyday life scenarios. Not so much a painter depicts the story of her experience as it is her heart fantasy scenes.

    As a woman, Yuan Yuan is still very young, her experience of social life is not complicated, but she has a very rich and delicate psychological world. As a painter, she is on the threshold of her art road, but she already has her own individual and mature painting style. Yuan Yuan's painting is the record of her psychological world, reading her painting is gaining an insight into her true and hidden inner world.  

    Yuan Yuan has a sensitive heart, and her temperament inclines to melancholy. According to Aristotle’s saying, famous people in the fields of philosophy, state activities, poetry, or the plastic arts are almost melancholic. Plato also believes that melancholic persons experience higher than the medium level, their talent is far more than others.

    Although we are still unable to predict the future of the artistic achievements of Yuan Yuan, but the young artist do show a very good painting talent. Facing canvas, Yuan Yuan not only know what to paint, but also know how to draw, therefore, in the world of painting she is a handy, freedom Heroine.
