Chinese born and French-based artist Minghao Dong is a graduate from the University of Dalian where he learned to perfect his color-blending skills. Channeling iconic artist Andy Warhol, the illustrator mimics Warhol's visually vivid style and creates modern pop art masterpieces that feature colored skull imagery.

Though he works predominantly in print, the artist also experiments with painting, engraving and art installations. Naming Gerard Richter as one of his greatest influences, the illustrator creates vivid compositions that are reflective of his thoughts.

Exploring themes of life and death, Minghao Dong captures abstracted color combinations on a canvas. These eye-catching compositions are accented with individual or multiplied skull images that are reminiscent of Andy Warhol's famed graphics from the 60s.
