Artist Siyuan Ma creates tranquil impressionist watercolors of cultural architecture and landscapes. His integration of stains and marks left by flowing water-based pigments recall the gentle and light feeling of Chinese freehand ink painting. “Beautiful scenery is not necessarily far away. It is often around you, waiting to be discovered,” says Siyuan. Bright hues freely dance with gentle nuances, expressing a sense of stillness and peace. He carefully explores light and color and applies various contemporary painting techniques as he continuously expands the edge of painting media—turning a plain surface into a poetic space full of emotion. He creates art that is not only limited to visual aspects but also deeply meaningful. Born in Tianjin, China, Siyuan finished a bachelor’s degree from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2011. Now living in Los Angeles, Siyuan converted his living room into his home studio, which he keeps clean and tidy. His creative process is deeply rooted in where he lives and draws inspiration from my surroundings. As he continues to pursue his creative passion, Siyuan takes on part-time jobs, which allows him to earn a living while still pursuing his artistic dreams.

The integration of water stains and marks left by flowing water-based pigments on the picture has the gentle and light feeling of Chinese freehand ink painting. The brief and neat brushstrokes all show the fabulous charm and quiet features of painting. If there is any random splashing that seems to be indistinguishable, it will create a dream-like picture. Bright colors dance freely on the picture, dip in layers, and naturally penetrate randomly into the picture, presenting a sense of quietness and peace.
