These may appear to be traditional Chinese landscape paintings, but take a closer look at these pieces by Yao Lu and you’ll see that these are not the beautiful scenes you’d expect. 

About the project:

The artist photographs mounds of garbage covered in green protective nets which he assembles and reworks by computer to create bucolic images of mountain landscapes shrouded in the mist inspired by traditional Chinese paintings. Lying somewhere between painting and photography, between the past and the present, Yao Lu’s work speaks of the radical mutations affecting nature in China as it is subjected to rampant urbanization and the ecological threats that endanger the environment.
