The basic inspiration for the paintings of Yang Shaobin originates from the idea that non-physical intimidation can be worse than physical violence.
A power struggle that appears to be softer than physical violence (yet oftentimes is more damaging), is one of political intimidation and the loss of freedom. An image of disproportionate bodies with wounded faces, a fist, biting of ears and grabbing of human flesh is shown in the painting.
Yang Shaobin controls the esthetics to create moral inequality and confusion. He uses figures and shapes such that it leaves the viewer with a non-realistic feeling, a sounding alarm of fear that goes directly to the soul.
