AISHONANZUKA is please to announce a solo exhibition of Chinese artist Chen Yingjie (Hua Tunan) “UTMOST”, which will be Chen Yingjie’s first exhibition in Hong Kong.
Chen Yingjie, aka Hua Tunan, is a young Chinese artist. He was born in 1991 in Foshan, Guangdong, China. In 2010, he studied in Raffles Design Institute in Singapore. Now, Chen Yingjie works and lives in Shunde (Guangdong, China)
Under the early influence of his father, Chen Yingjie started to learn Chinese traditional painting at the age of six, which laid a solid foundation for his latter art career. In addition, he also drew lots of inspirations from famous Chinese ink painting artists like Wu Guanzhong and Zhang Daqian. During his studies in Singapore, he also discovered and found inspiration in Western street art.
For Chen Yingjie, graffiti is an art performance with a combination of sensation, power, and speed. After continually trying and painting, the artist increasingly mastered the splattered ink technique. And he spent nearly three years on transforming his practice and finding his own technique.
With his new-found technique Chen Yingjie paints on papers, canvas and walls, finding inspiration everywhere. Different sizes of painting and transitions of space bring a series of new challenges to the artist.
He also sets foot in the crossover cooperation with well-known brands :
Louis Vuitton (2013)
