Hoping to broaden his experiences, Yihang spent a year at Ohio University and then earned MFA at Maryland Institute in Baltimore where he studied under the abstract expressionist Grace Hartigan. His works reflect his Chinese heritage with the influence of the freedom afforded in Western art culture.
