Have you ever tried creating works of art by melting crayon and quickly blowing so that the melted material will splatter all over a white sheet of paper? The idea is to create something beautiful, albeit maybe totally indecipherable. I hope that there’s at least one who can relate, so I don’t feel too weird. ;)
Then again, I think that Hua Tunan, or Chen Yingjie in real life, has got my back in this regard. Not that what I created as a child would have even remotely resembled Tunan’s “splatter art”, but I think that anyone can see that the similarity in intention.
Tunan is a known figure in the world of Chinese street art. I hadn’t heard of the artist till today, but I might not be totally wrong if I liken his status to Banksy. The work, though, is rather different. Not that one is better than the other, but the styles are not the same.
In any case, let’s take a look at some of the most impressive splatter art by Tunan.
I’ve called this piece black bird, for obvious reasons. Striking isn’t it?
This parrot is proof that the artist does not only work with dark colors. Any pirate would be proud to have such a parrot perched atop his shoulder!
This piece really took up a lot of my time. I like watching fish, and this painting just seems to give the creatures life.
I think I see a face in there somewhere, but I am not sure if it’s male or female. It doesn’t matter. The artwork is still fantastic.
The dragon takes home the cake. With lots of icing. And the little cupcakes that go with cake packages these days. This splatter art piece is simply breathtaking.
