When people and cultures meet, there is an exchange of ideas and influences that come along with an exchange of goods and wares. The United States and China stand as the two economic giants of the modern world, and rely on each other for economic success. It is therefore only natural that we see new and innovative ideas coming from this new relationship.
Hua Tunan (also known as Chen Yingjie) hails from Foshan in the Guangdong province of China and has grown up to be inspired by art from both West and East. He has blended traditional Chinese art with the graffiti spraypaint style to create his own unique ‘splatter’ style.
His paintings and street murals are striking and surreal, often reminding you of the ancient myths and power of legendary and godly beasts of Chinese folklore. Whether on paper or upon a concrete wall, carefully aimed splatters carve out magnificent tributes to revered animals and legends.
