Chinese new media artist Yang Yongliang was classically trained in Chinese painting and calligraphy from a very young age. Now he uses digital tools to capture that time-tested aesthetic. Traditional Chinese culture permeates his cutting-edge creative process: He uses new techniques and software to interpret older forms, like Chinese landscape paintings.

Take a sneak peak at one of his new intricate animations, and follow us to a recently demolished subway station where he captures the conflict between nature and urbanity.
