With a unique combination of Western graffiti styles and traditional Chinese art, 23-year old Chen Yingjie, aka Hua Tunan, is making a name for himself as one of the leading forces in the realm of street art. His work demonstrates his exploration of remarkable ways to combine two seemingly different styles with elements that include ink painting, drum rhythms, and a variety of cultural symbols.
Splatter Ink Cheetah is grand in scale and incredibly detailed, combining traditional Chinese ink methods and Western art graffiti by splattering ink, adding complexity and richness to the breathtaking image. The colors come to life, almost mimicking the wild and unpredictable nature of his subject.
Tunan is a core member of the EDGE Creative Collective, a Shanghai-based agency, dedicated to helping clients achieve creative ideas and inspired storytelling. His “splatter” portraits encompass organized chaos, while simultaneously exuding a sense of preciseness, further demonstrating his mastery as an artist.
