YANG LI MING, a leading painter of abstract art from Cheng Du, the capital of China’s Sichuan Province, studio is in the Fei Jia Cun Artist Village in Beijing, China. Yang’s abstract paintings are constructed of layer upon layer of vibrant, rolling lines, which he creates while listening to Mozart and Bach at deafening volume. Yang explains that the first few strokes of his paintings are the most important, as they determine the success of following layers and the final work.

The Fei Jia Cun Artist Village is one of several art communities surrounding Beijing where leading painters, sculptors and photographers from across China work and exhibit. These art villages represent the forefront of China’s Abstract, Pop, and Neo-Realist artists. More China Contemporary Artists Yang Jinsong and Wang Xing. – by William Avedon

Those are gorgeous lines. Reminds me of some contemporary music scores.

That's really fascinating. When I paint I listen to classical music - there's something quite magically inspiring about it! Maybe if I turn the volume up I will get as good as this guy. There is so much depth.
