Youthful Chinese painter Bu Yue opened her debut exhibition in Beijing on April 2, after having spent the last 10 years living in France.

The homecoming exhibition has showcased her eye-catching creations made during that time, at the Amy Li Gallery.

Bu was born in southwest China's Guizhou Province, and learned to draw and paint when she was a young girl. Her grandma and her aunt had a deep influence on her upbringing and helped her develop her interests.

She headed overseas to study in 2007. At the time she read large amounts of western literature and also became a fan of classical music. Her idea was to combine poetry and literature into painting.

She was successfully signed up by a gallery in France before she graduated from university, and has already exhibited in Europe.

Bu's unique affection for the color gray inspired her to produce series of oil paintings of traditional Chinese art using this palette, which will be included in the exhibition.

The show will run from April 2 to May 22.
