Oriental inspiration takes on a Western twist. The mythical realm blurs the boundaries of reality. Guang’s work presented the aesthetic impression that produce by fusion of strong contrast elements, like the fusion of eastern and Western culture, integration of classical and modern art. He references a lot of Chinese classical art forms and elements, and expresses through the contemporary techniques and aesthetic way.
Exotic birds gaze across vibrant backgrounds, exploring rich vegetation and soft diffusions of bright hues. Tonal infusions drift across striking backgrounds, adding a dreamy element, almost like a splash of watercolors. Intricate patterns pay attention to even the smallest of details, creating a contemporary collage of contrasting feathers and mystical creatures. Eastern landscapes evolve with poignant motifs and bold brushstrokes, unleashing the imagination to explore a new and untouched world. An innovative mix of traditional elements of culture and travel, creating a fresh balance of texture and color.
