Artist Statement

Being a young artist who grew up in China and received a high school diploma in the United States, I’ve always questioned how should the contemporary art of China develop. I learned the basic drawing skills in Beijing and art history in the United States. The artist that inspires me the most is Odilon Redon, and the Romanticism poetry, as well as the classic philosophical works, add more insights to my artworks.

I’ve planned my career to be a fine artist; my long-term goal is to establish a contemporary art style, like the Pre-Raphaelites, upon the foundation of a solid Chinese cultural background.”
