Yang Yongliang is a Chinese artist based in Shanghai. He has a background of traditional Chinese art, such as calligraphy or painting, that started from a very early age. He pursued further art education at Hong-Kong Chinese  and Shaghai Fine Arts Institute. He turned this knowledge into something new using modern digital art techniques. His work has been exhibited all around the world.

Yongliang’s project Heavenly City is one of his recent works, it uses digital techniques and photography to create scenes that look like traditional Chinese paintings with a twist. Entire cities seem built upon clouds of destruction, making it look ephemeral scenes doomed to disappear quickly.
