Introduction of work:
Yingjie tried to reiterate the practice of Chinese painting by a calligraphy-style way through spraying. Overturning the medium of traditional ink painting, expanding the size of work, and challenging the limits of body to create those violent and aesthetic work. This is a painting art which needs body language. In this way, it explores the combination of Chinese traditional ink painting and Western street art graffiti, and strives to find a balance between two contradictory and antagonistic culture. In his opinion, Chinese traditional ink painting is seemingly contradictory with Western street art graffiti, but once they combine with each other, they will show harmonious beauty of the work.
