Tang Yongxiang (b. 1977, Hubei Province) currently lives and works in Beijing.
Tang Yongxiang started capturing the daily life through the photos as creative materials and bases for the consequent paintings during his postgraduate study. Since 2007, his focus transferred from image itself to the process of absorbing. At this stage, he has formed his unique visual language through the method of repeating layering in painting, basing yet reconstructing the original images. He deems the painting is a process of experiencing. Hence, images, form and colours are applied to a specific field, accompanying with his instincts. This is precisely what Tang wants to provide to the audience.
