Yang Yongliang

b. 1980, China

Yang Yongliang was born in Shanghai in 1980. From his early age, he was classically trained in traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy. Like traditional landscape paintings, his works predominantly feature mountainous landscapes yet he exposes in the distance evidence of urbanization in China. In his practice he sought to use new media techniques to translate traditional landscape painting into contemporary times.
