Interpretation of Yang Yilei's Engraved Painting Art
Yang Yilei has a lot of bookplate works in his engraved art pieces, each of them is excellent. He likes freehand drawings, the lines are smooth and charming. When they are copied on to wood boards, the liveliness of the original lines was kept, allowing the works to fully convey the artist's feelings, which seem frank and vivid. The composition of the bookplate paintings is simple and colorful. In the early times, the works were created for his daughter, the idea of the work "Zhizhi's Little Book" came from his daughter's birthday. The heart-warming moment with candles in different colors, a chubby girl, and the big cake give a sense as if people are living in fairytales.
In the aspect of art persuing, Yang Yilei said: "I love everything beautiful in my life, providing bookplate with a bright and optimistic artistic conception. In creation, I seek straight freeness and ease, fond of concise modeling, simple lines, and thick decoration. I think this is an expression of naive from someone who still has innocence, and it is a pure and persistent ideal pursuit.
