Sang huoyao has been engaged in the creation of Chinese literati art for quite a long time. He is deeply familiar with the tradition of painting art in Song and Yuan Dynasty, especially Mi Fu's and Ni Zan's painting art. With the transformation of social modernisation, he has been adhering to the contemporary of Chinese ink painting and the exploration of the internationalization of ink painting since 1998. Sorted out from his own creative practice, he combines the eastern philosophy and aesthetics with an artist's unique comprehension to the present. Then his continuous pursuit of metaphysical spiritual purport gradually formed a methodology of squares overlapping and his own theory of Affective-Imagoism Art, then they eventually become his own unique art language and symbols. He successively held his solo exhibitions in the National Art Museum of China, Today Art Museum, China Arts Museum and Guangdong Museum of Art.
