City Shan Shui

Inspired by Yang Yong-Liang’s photo series” Phantom Landscapes,” I believe there is a way to approach the Chinese painting appearance by using some modern elements. In Yang’s work, he used images of cities to compose “Mountain water” a symbolic element of China. Without using other traditional Chinese elements, Yang still successfully recreates the look of Chinese painting.

My project will adopt Yang’s idea of compose “Mountain water” with skyscrapers. Different from Yang’s works, I’ll also texture the building with the Chinese watercolor so viewers can look the detail of models without breaking the consistence of Chinese painting appearance.
