Any themes presented in oil painting works by artist Zhou Chun-ya have unique style, rich expressions as well as left deep and memorable impressions to viewers. Through his brush strokes, lines and strong color sense, Zhou Chun-ya endowed his artworks with vivid life and vitality.

The unique style of Zhou Chunya's oil painting works is closely related to his career of abroad study at the Art Institute in Germany from 1986 to 1989. During the studying term in Germany, he accepted the baptism of new expressionism which was prominent at the time, which had impacted him deeply. After returning home, with high power of understanding, Zhou Chunya combined the new expressionism with traditional Chinese culture, and the same time involved in the traditional countryside style insisted by artists of the Yuan dynasty and part of modern artists, then Zhou Chunya established his unique concept of painting.

Artist Zhou Chunya believes the connotation of his artworks can be expressed independently, and do not need explains of external factors, he also believes that the connotations of artworks are lied in visual images, rather than the description of things. Zhou Chunya had told me that when he was inclined to the development of images, which includes structure processing, colors, lines and painting strokes and so on, he focused on physical beauty caused by visual sensitivity, he believes his sensitivity is same as other sensitive things. He also described the beauty evocated by visual senses is same as the feelings when listen to swings in the nature and dulcet music.
