Yongliang’s works often depict dystopian futuristic landscapes where urbanisation collides with the natural world. Creating a black and white narration of China’s past, present and future, the artist pulls the viewer into an abyss of the multilayers he creates. Working to bridge a connection between audiences with different backgrounds, his pieces draw on the dismantling of Chinese heritage and tradition in the pursuit of industrialisation.
