Master of Splatter

These are the intense splatter paintings by Chen Yingjie, A.K.A. Hua Tunan. Tuan’s art is a brilliantly-successful blend of traditional Chinese ink art and western graffiti. While he maintains many of the traditional Chinese methods with which he was raised, Tuan’s paintings still have a very modern feel. Although he still characterizes himself as a street artist, his work has been commissioned by the likes of Louis Vuitton, Adidas, NIKE, Jaguar, Volvo, and Disney, to name a few.

I especially love his use of splatter and his subtle metallics. Even though his paintings are far from hyper-realistic, I think they do a brilliant job of capturing the energy and motion and spirit of the creatures he portrays.

You can follow Tunan on his website and on Instagram and Facebook.

  5. Wow! I love the energy of these. I employ a lot of spatter and dribble in my own artwork but nothing that has this degree of control or shape to it. Basically I just make a mess. Ha ha! I am especially drawn to the rhino and to the owl on the stump in the more neutral, earthy tones.
