GupaJuhe's work takes root in the Yi Jing (Zhou Yi): one of the five Chinese classics about the nature of change.
Passionate about aesthetics and Chinese culture while he was still a student, GupaJuhe takes the Yi Jing as a support to be interpreted and experienced in the pictorial field in all its forms.
According to him, the Yi Jing is like a mandala. From unity to multiplicity, the Yi Jing is the game of Yin and Yang which unfurls like a wave at infinity.
But for the artist, the Yi Jing is more than a matrix to create, it is also a way to restore an ancient knowledge in a contemporary form with a Western vision.
GupaJuhe's work is a subtle mix of past and present. Between novelty and tradition, it seems to be the imprint of a timeless art revisited by the computer tool.
Here, the work of GupaJuhe serves a Chinese philosophical heritage of 5000 years old, which is a non-dogmatic universal model of wisdom.
After a break of about two years, GupaJuhe re-start in 2013 with new series with the inclusion of QR codes, writing Chinese seals and blue of the Ming Dynasty.
