Right from the get go, Du Yi's graffiti stands out as altogether different than your average fare, but in a medium known and celebrated for its diversity and eclectic styling that is definitely not a bad thing.

With painstaking attention to detail, each Du Yi graffiti creation has the unusual effect of seeming to be constructed from shimmering metal wire rather than merely being a painted-on illusion. Du Yi achieves this result by blending his work seamlessly into its environment with extensive shading and lighting sensitivities. This has the effect of making his graffiti literally pop out from the wall upon which it is drawn and seem both lifelike and life-sized. In fact, his artworks are so effective that many of them would definitely be an alarming thing to stumble upon unawares.
