LiveArt today announced an upcoming partnership with Huang Yuxing (b. 1975, Beijing) to co-create “Meta-morphic: the Genesis of Huang Yuxing,” an exclusive NFT introduction of the contemporary artist. Already known for his deft paintings, Huang will expand his physical work and enter the digital realm through this origin collection of generative NFTs. Each NFT will evolve and unlock along with a collector’s participation.
This NFT drop is produced and published by LiveArt, which was launched in early 2021 by a team of former executives from Sotheby’s and Christie’s to bridge the gap between the physical and digital art worlds. The collaboration between two leading forces in the art world will bring their collective creativity to the rapidly maturing world of digital art.
“Metamorphic is my first generative NFT project. This new medium allows for a new kind of exploration of recurring motifs in my work – minerals, bubbles and rivers – and the themes of nature and time that are hallmarks of my artistic journey,” said Huang Yuxing of the collaboration.

Huang Yuxing is recognized for paintings that reflect and preserve the process of their creation. The work’s exceptional synthesis of styles has broad appeal, with images that call back to traditional Chinese landscape painting rendered in an ultra-modern neon palette bordering on abstraction. Huang’s works have already passed US$8 million at auction, most recently through the sale of his epic riverscape Seven Treasure Pines (2016–19) which sold for HK$64.8 million ($8.3 million), more than 13 times its high estimate, a record sum for a Chinese artist born after 1970.
“We are thrilled to be working with Huang Yuxing on his ‘Genesis’ NFT collection,” said Marisa Kayyem, head of the LiveArt NFT division. “Yuxing’s arresting work brings together tradition and innovation, not constrained by limitations or boundaries. He is an ideal partner in LiveArt’s mission to support creators in exploring blockchain as an artistic medium, bring traditional collectors into the digital space, and expose crypto collectors to cutting-edge contemporary artists.”
“Metamorphic: The Origins of Huang Yuxing” will be available this fall exclusively on LiveArt. Visit to receive updates on the collaboration.

About Huang Yuxing
Huang Yuxing (b. 1975, Beijing) is recognized among his generation for his ability to create paintings that reflect and preserve the process of their creation. Colors, brushstrokes and traces of the artist’s hand remain on his canvases after being continuously layered and mixed. The meticulous brushstrokes and intense colors that permeate his works are rooted in the traditional Chinese realist technique, ‘Gongbi Zhongcai’, while building on these principles through a signature contemporary style that continues to evolve.
Huang’s artistic practice is characterized by exceptional depth: while his works may initially resemble an expressionist style, they are deeply rooted in a detailed construction of landscape and human form that radiates vivid color and reflects the experience of creation. Huang’s work is characterized by a sharp and clear contrast between the vitality of color and the harsh realities of life. Rivers, bubbles, treasures, sunrises and sunsets are recurring motifs in his works which are presented with dazzling visual effect, yet embody the artist’s extensive study of individuals, nature, life, politics and beyond.
