Yesterday I went to the David Zwirner Gallery in Chelsea and checked out an exhibition by a Chinese artist named Yan Pei-Ming. I was really inspired! He paints these huge monochromatic scenes that are quite electrifying.  I loved his loose brushwork and the use of color and the fact he only used one colour -either all red or all black. Very cool!
