Yang Mai 
Lives and works in New York
​Yang Mai’s work focuses on the possible functions

By removing commercial seriousness from industrial and introducing playful or exaggerated features, his work hopes to encourage and celebrate our rebellious human nature and establish alternative symbolizations of the present reality.
