About the artwork

Here is a bird’s-eye view of Shanghai in brilliant red that is symbolic of China, depicting all it's richness, beauty and vitality amidst a monochromatic background. The piece denotes depth with the use of layered materials, textures and movement. Yu masterfully conveys the aesthetic aspect of Shanghai with the contrast of two contrasting colours (rich in symbolic meaning.)
