Yang Yongliang is a young artist from Shanghai whose studies focused on traditional Chinese shui mo painting and calligraphy. Using a camera - the contemporary visual device chosen by many of his generation - he cleverly recreates "Cun", the main form of Chinese Shanshui paintings in order to reveal modern city life and details of current urban culture. Scenes of construction sites, large cranes, traffic signs and fly-overs, have all become critical elements in his artworks. Arranged in the traditional composition of Chinese landscape, These large scale photographs look like dreamy Shanshui paintings. But on closer viewing, they reveal themselves as shockingly modern city views.
