Yu Yang (于炀) is a self-trained artist living and working in Edinburgh. He perceives himself as a writer utilizing the visual language of art and engages in a conceptual approach, wherein he revisits and reimagines quotidian experiences. His practice is marked by a sense of restraint and simplicity, and he often creates works that are deliberately subtle and understated with a literary overtone. Through manipulating familiar forms drawn from the mundane, he endeavours to examine the intersection of visual arts and literature within contemporary societies.
