"The plaster geometry and most of the cursed—silencers, figures as well as planets—are restored to astronomical objects in vector without exception.”—Zhao Yang

Zhao Yang's paintings wander among reality, Eastern and Western fairy tales as well as fables. The artist transforms them into metaphors and symbols, and finally present the hybrid images to the audience. In his graphic world, it is common to find virtual figures and absurd images that  represent different ideas respectively, in order to strengthens the visual appealing by highlighting contradictions. Though made of Western pigments, Zhao Yang's work is significantly influenced by his academic background in Chinese painting - he applies what he has learned from the system of traditional ink painting to different materials and spaces. From Zhao’s perspective, the uncontrollable nature, which the flow of ink in water has, is central to Chinese painting.
