Hua Tunan creates spectacular paintings by combining traditional elements of Chinese art and culture with a more modern context and aesthetic. Although he revolves his artworks around concrete images of animals and humans, there is something strikingly abstract about them as well. This is due in large part to Hua Tunan's colorful technique that makes the paint look like it serendipitously exploded all over his cavases.

Based in Foshan, China, Hua Tunan is a rising star in the art world. He not only creates single pieces, Hua Tunan also focuses on performance and street art. In fact, Volvo flew him out to Zurich to work some graffiti magic on one of their blank cars for a campaign. Currently part of the Chinese creative agency NeochaEDGE, people should keep an eye on Hua Tunan. Stats for Chromatically Exploding Paintings Trending: Older & Buzzing
