In recent years, more and more Chinese youth have become obsessed with wall paintings to express their attitudes and ideas. Zhang Xiaoyuan, from Guiyang, Southwest China’s Guizhou Province, is one of them.
He has been fond of painting since childhood, and self-taught without any professional training. In 2012, Zhang got to know about wall paintings, and has since become a professional wall painter.
When painting, Zhang often starts by kicking a bucket of pigment against the wall. The paintings are always blended with the structures of buildings, three-dimensional and vivid, which can produce a distinct visual effect.
The videos of his wall paintings are very popular among Chinese netizens. Some have been viewed over 10 million times.
