About Yang

Toronto-based artist Yang Cao paints faceless figures to portray a spectrum of emotions and sensations. A graduate in fine art from the Ontario College of Art and Design, Cao typically creates fantastical paintings of nude bodies with cloud-like heads in dull colors.

Cao explains the work by saying, “I like the unpredictability of the cloud. It’s shapeless and changes all the time, it follows the wind and never stays in one form and place. Somehow I find this as a resemblance to our human nature and mind.”
