Yang Yongliang: Exhibition
May 12 @ 3:00 pm - May 26 @ 5:00 pm AEST
Sullivan+Strumpf Sydney is delighted to present the first solo exhibition in Sydney by celebrated Chinese new media artist Yang Yongliang.
Yang Yongliang (born in 1980, Shanghai, China) exploits a connection between traditional Chinese art and the complexities of contemporary urban life, conflating ancient oriental aesthetics and literati beliefs with modern language and digital techniques. Born in Shanghai where he now lives and works, Yang Yongliang was schooled from early childhood in the art of traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy, graduating from China Academy of Art, Shanghai in 2003, majoring in Visual Communication. His groundbreaking use of new media including virtual reality and multi-channel video–included in numerous international museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum in New York–is informed by Chinese Philosophy and his early training in the inherited traditions of Song Dynasty landscape painting.
