There’s nothing much to talk about at the first glance of these Chinese Shan Shui painting by Yao Lu, an artist from China.

Then, with a closer look, you realize the beauty of the trash hills are all captured resembling Chinese paintings.  With Photoshop touch-up, the trash hills emerged as beautiful landscapes with gorgeous creek covered with mist.

These art pieces are messages brought across by the artist on how much rubbish we have discarded in a speedy developing city.  Hopefully her art pieces serve as a reminder of how much our mother earth has been destroyed and a reflection of how we should cherish our beautiful earth like the exquisite Chinese paintings.

    I really like these paintings. They have a very important message as you say, and the artist certainly reveals his foundation after the Ling Nan school, and particularly the use of the blue-green colours as in the latter phase of Chang Dai Chin’s works.

    Love this for many reasons. No ranting and raving. Just a beautiful opportunity to look again and think again about what we have been doing.

    I agree, Sydney. We have a beautiful world, and the more stuff we have, the more we pollute. I don’t know how we can go backwards. What a sad thought. 🙂 Sorry to leave it with you.

        You haven’t been well physically, and that can take a lot out of you. It takes a while to get back to normal. Take care of my friend, Sydney. Be patient with him. 🙂
