Vivid Illustrations Depict Dynamic Scenes of Nature and East Asian Mythology

Shenzhen, China-based artist RLoN Wang is back with more intricate illustrations that burst with color and life. Since we last shared his work a year ago, Wang has branched out from more understated portraits of animals to vibrant illustrations jam-packed with wild beasts, mythical creatures, and motifs from nature. Rendered in a style reminiscent of Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints, Wang's drawings incorporate rich imagery from East Asian folklore and art, including elaborately curled clouds, giant carp, and fierce Chinese guardian lions. Overflowing with meticulous details, dynamic line art, and vivid hues, each piece demands a second or third look in order to be appreciated fully.
