I saw this building on my recent artist residency in Beijing with Red Gate Gallery. I have been asked to have an exhibition of paintings responding to my residency. This is one of them. I call these paintings "Roof Words" Where I connect to the visual meaning not the literal when it comes to the words on top of buildings everywhere in Beijing screaming their messages at you. I see the beauty in those messages and don't want to know what they are saying. I added Ai weiwei to make the image a little surreal and give it artistic weight.

YIANNI JOHNS Drawing all night from his earliest memories Yianni was and still is addicted to art. In some cases he has referred to art, as, important to him as oxygen, without it he can’t survive. Yianni is a self-taught artist who started exhibiting his work in public in 1985. In 1991 had his first solo exhibition in Sydney where he was involved with at the time, a very progressive art movement called, ‘Art in Public Spaces.’ In 1998 Yianni hosted his own Solo Exhibition on the Central Coast where he lived at the time. In 2002 Yianni made the front page of his local paper after being selected to sit for an Archibald Prize by the award-winning artist Peter Smeeth. This article brought him to the attention of local businessman Cedric Millner. Out of that meeting a new gallery was born in the heart of Wyong. The Grand Gallery shared a space with a Bottle shop at the back of the Grand Hotel a perfect venue for an art gallery. The charter of the Grand Gallery was, “Bringing Art Back to the People.” Grand Gallery went on to become the center for contemporary art on the Central Coast attracting hundreds of art lovers to its many themed openings and artistic happenings. Out of the Grand Gallery the Zooid Art Movement was born with many high profile art stunts, invented and coordinated by Yianni, like moving art exhibitions through the streets of Sydney and the Zooids own portrait exhibition on the stairs of the Art Gallery of NSW getting them media coverage in nearly every paper and TV network in the country. In 2007 Yianni founded the Super Art Project where he took over an ailing Supa Centa in Tuggerah NSW, at its peak Yianni was curating 24 studio galleries housing 64 Artists in all genres. There were over a thousand guests at the official opening in 2008 of what Yianni says was one of the biggest bringing art back to the people events on the Coast. In 2009 Yianni was invited to have a Solo Exhibition in Gallery Gora in Montreal during the comedy festival. While there he met an art agent who got him an Exhibition in Chelsea in New York in May 2010. Yianni has a degree in Fine Art and Visual Culture Curtin University and has a Masters Degree Arts (Writing) from Swinburne University Melbourne. Yianni has exhibited regularly since 1985 featuring in over 80 exhibitions. Yianni’s art is collected by corporate and private collectors worldwide.
