Against this historical background, Huang Shiling lived in Guangzhou, a trading port city at that time, in different periods of his life, and absorbed many thoughts of foreign arts. His art of paintings and seal carvings was simultaneously affected by traditional epigraphy and Western photography and techniques and principles of painting and thus presented modern characteristics.
