Heavenly City, by Yang Yongliang

Recently, while I was glancing through a photography magazine in a bookstore in Padua, I have noticed these digital collages by Yang Yongliang, a Chinese artist.
What has struck me quite a lot is the visionariety of these works: with images of explosions, road traffic, reinforced concrete buildings and other things, he has conceived hypothetical cities floating in the sky, or raising towards it like a huge tower.
All of these works have been exhibited at the Limn Art Gallery, San Francisco.

Qualche giorno fa, sfogliando una rivista di arte fotografica in una libreria di Padova, mi sono imbattuto in questi collages digitali dell’artista cinese Yang Yongliang.
Mi ha colpito parecchio la visionarietà di queste opere: partendo da immagini di esplosioni, di traffico urbano, di costruzioni in cemento armato ed altro, ha concepito delle ipotetiche città sospese nel cielo, o che si innalzano verso di esso come una torre immensa.
Tutte queste opere sono state esposte alla Limn Art Gallery di San Francisco.
