Chinese Street Artist Hua Tunan unleashes the Tiger for Underground 2016

We were honoured to have street artist Hua Tunan make the long journey from China to London to exclusively paint a huge canvas for Underground  2016. Chinese-born street artist Hua Tunan is fast becoming one of the biggest names on the international street art scenes and we can see why! Hua began his artistic career painting in traditional Chinese techniques, taught to him by his father. It was then whilst studying in Singapore he became involved within the urban art scene and ignited a passion for graffiti and street art.

A true performer by nature, this very talented artist is able to bring a controlled chaotic energetic composition by mixing western graffiti styles with traditional Chinese methods, staying true to his Chinese heritage. Watching Hua Tunan paint with traditional and untraditional methods was such a treat. The use of an electric drill was part of that uniqueness bringing movement to the animal in a crazily cool new concept! Check out below the behind the scenes images and final shots of Hua Tunan’s ‘Uncaged’ masterpiece.

The canvas size was 285cm wide by 195cm tall and is available to purchase for £20,000, this and other art works from Underground 2016 can be found via the high-resolution PDF here, or the mobile friendly low-resolution here.

Through his art, Hua Tunan manages to evoke emotions from people all over the world and he has certainly shook ours up. This was Hua Tunan first venture to UK and it won’t be the last! Watch this space…
