Art is an outlet of the mind to aid in sharing the stream of conscious of your soul and inner self. The work an artist creates is a way for them to speak through objects over words.
Artist Yang Maoyuan is highly regarded in his original ideas and exotic art pieces.
Maoyuan is a Chinese artist and uses the skins of dead animals as a medium to work with.
By inflating the skins to monstrous sizes, and often dyeing them in vibrant colors, Maoyuan creates work that stands out amongst the rest.
Maoyuan’s process involves stitching and processing the skins. After, he will blow the skins up to round, bloated and larger-than-life shapes.
Choosing animals from his Mongolian ancestry, Maoyuan will travel to Heibei in Northern China to purchase the animal skins.
Horses, goats and sheep are often chosen as canvases. Maoyuan is working to reflect his oldest dream symbols. By inflating the skins to take a rounder form, he is representing harmony in China.
Additionally, Maoyuan has created works with multiple heads and extra limbs.
Exploring the shapes and misshapes of the body, Maoyuan’s work has become a hit worldwide.
