Yang Mian paints a sort of heavenly ideals. In his paintings he sets standards or values for the new China. He almost caricatures the levels of aspiration of young materially ambitious Chinese. The advertising world uses the same images. But Mian glamourizes the ideals with his extremely pale colours, and at the same time he degrades them with the yellow or purple stripes he draws across the images.
