YuLiang Liu is a photographer and visual artist based in Berlin. His work merges photographs of contemporary guys with classical paintings — with glorious effect. Inspired by Renaissance art, Lui plays with contrasts of masculine and feminine, the fragility and beauty of naked male bodies and their juxtaposition with classical imagery and architecture.

There are often playful contemporary queer cultural references and stylistic interpretations, much in the same way that UK artist Banksy adds modern stylings to old paintings to give them a new message. Lui does this in a much sexier and captivating way. An art world superstar in the making.
