Paintings by Yang Cao

Citing iGNANT: Toronto-based artist Yang Cao paints faceless figures to portray a spectrum of emotions and sensations. A graduate in fine art from the Ontario College of Art and Design, Cao typically creates fantastical paintings of nude bodies with cloud-like heads in dull colours.In an interview about his work, Cao says: "I like the unpredictability of the cloud. It’s shapeless and changes all the time, it follows the wind and never stays in one form and place. Somehow I find this as a resemblance to our human nature and mind." yang-cao4
