From the Artist... I work many paintings in the same topic since 2020. Just like what I titled one of my artworks: Dream Is An Invitation, Art is an Escape, fantasy is the kind of escape form. But it is rather the hymn to nature. The most attraction of painting to me is a sort of exploring. Sometimes I find amazing elements on the canvas, which may be an animal or a tree, which organized by color blocks accidentally, during the painting, these accidents and my creation map the whole story. The animals, people, and plants are hiding in my painting, audiences could find them, imagine them or ignore them because many of them are between representational quite abstract.
I have deep passion in Chinese traditional multi-spots perspective, which I learned from Chinese traditional Buddhist Wall Painting, from which I could see extremely strong and powerful romance and freedom. I am addicted to learning and exploring this sort of unlimited and active expression. I also get much inspiration from Chagall, Munch, Picasso, Perrotin, David Hockney and Huang Yongyu.
