In 1999, Huang Yan began a series of landscape paintings on the human body entitled “Chinese Landscapes”, in which he tatooes his own body to reference a heritage that is inherent in Chinese culture, these traditional landscape paintings which have become the embodiment of Chinese art. This work has been remarked by famous curators and by Ai Wei Wei himself, who included it into his exhibition Fuck Off in 2000.
