John Y. Chang expresses the duality of his Chinese and American experiences by juxtaposing traditional and unconventional symbols and images through the application of mixed media. Deconstructed Chinese calligraphy collaged over segments of world history and references to modern pop-culture depict his personal transformation. Chang’s use of calligraphy here contrasts the customary usage of Chinese calligraphy. Where the later has created a conformed expectation of structure and the beauty of brushwork, John’s expressive characters allow for a freedom of interpretation.
John Y. Chang is a mixed media artist, calligrapher and abstract painter originally from Shanghai, China who now resides in Southern California. www.johnychang.net
