With summer halfway complete it is time for us to change out our main banner and introduce you to our newest member of The Bay Bridged Artist in Residence program, Lawrence Yang. Yang moved to the Bay Area in 2006 from Chicago where he was studying in the sciences. He ultimately changed his direction to focus on industrial design and currently works in the area of interaction design.

Taken from his website: “Lawrence Yang wrestles with informational abstractions by day and paints by night. Influenced by graffiti art and traditional Chinese painting, he employs ink, marker, and watercolor, as the permanence of this media adds a sense of immediacy to his work. Lawrence’s paintings make use of color to communicate atmosphere and emotion, and they are concerned primarily with creating order out of chaos (and vice versa). Lawrence once ate an entire bag of Fun Size Three Musketeersâ„¢. He lives in San Francisco with his imaginary pets, Cholo and Binky.”

We are thrilled to be showcasing Lawrence’s work on the site for the next two months. To see more of his outstanding art head on over to his web sites at suckatlife.com and lyyangdesign.com. You can also find more of his art at his daily updated blog, Blow at Life.
