Yang Mian Connecting The Dots

January 18, 2012

The subversive artist unveils an exhibition that makes digital picture composing tangible

  • Text by Karchun Leung

If you know a little bit about printing or graphic design, you would have come across CMYK, the digital format of how we construct our color pattern, so we can do our printing. As an artist, Yang Mian found CMYK to be the perfect idea, to discover how far he can push the aesthetics of traditional painting. He uses color dots to express the way in which CMYK data is painting the picture. What he was trying to illustrate is actually very traditional Chinese painting. A simple idea of mixing modern and traditional, it always works and can inspire lots of people.
