I'm Yang Zhixiang 杨智翔 a fashion designer, textile artist, and painter. I am thrilled to announce that my fashion brand will be launching next year. Since childhood, I have been immersed in the world of painting, cultivating a deep passion for oil painting and watercolors. I specialize in expressing my personal style through the use of dual-tone techniques.
During my undergraduate studies at Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts London, I delved into the realm of textile design and gradually discovered the immense potential of utilizing different textile materials in painting, which posed exciting challenges and brought a fresh perspective to my work.
Over time, I have developed my own distinctive style of textile painting, with a particular focus on the technique of montage. Unlike traditional textile design approaches that rely on molds and repetitive printing, my theory of montage textile painting involves the independent creation and juxtaposition of material structures to assemble a cohesive and representational visual composition.
Looking ahead, as I prepare for the launch of my fashion brand next year, I aspire to incorporate my textile design theories into futuristic and captivating designs. I hope to captivate attention and admiration with my creations. I firmly believe in the importance of continual exploration, learning, and innovation.
I am immensely grateful for the enriching experience of studying at the Royal College of Art this year. It has provided me with invaluable knowledge and inspiration. I eagerly look forward to showcasing my work and sharing my artistic journey with all of you.
