I am waiting for some kind of miracle! Every piece of my work has my art gallery. I consider myself an alchemist.I purify my heart through painting, I believe that art can reshape life while exploring the mysteries of the world, conveying the most profound portrayal of life in the artist's creation, persistence in creation is life.The meaning of hope that the stone will turn into gold.

What themes does your work involve?
My works involve the past, present and future, echoing the connection of distant things in time and space. My creative construction is based on future primitivism, combining codes, philosophy, literature, music and mechanical installation art. Blend and weave a world of strange and fantasy.
Describe your creative process.
I deal with my two states at the same time: one is the desire to move forward steadily and regularly, the other is trying to break through and find a world based on contemporary art Most of my works are series works. I love watching news about the discovery of new species and nature, such as Amami starry sky gizzard, tardigrades, blue dragons, sea god grass, etc. A future composition for painting, treat it as an out-of-print collection, an inspiration, a precious miracle every time.
What influences your work? What inspires you? Why do you make art?
For the five years from 2015 to 2019, I traveled to Europe at least 60 days a year. I've done art tours and visited 180 museums and galleries. My dream is to visit every art gallery in the world and my creations are exhibited and collected by art gallery around the world.
What is good art? What makes a piece of art great?
A unique identification, with its own painting language, can infinitely create many spiritual symbols of truth, goodness and beauty without a headache, including a discerning mind and a pure soul. A work of art is great because we complete it with strong vitality and courage, and finally achieve the prayer of beautiful giving.
What is the role of the artist today?
I don't want to paint realistic surfaces of various species, the lines do not necessarily need to be delicate, sometimes blurred and sometimes clear, what I am depicting is the beautiful atmosphere of life. If I can lead the way, I'm sure I'll get feedback too.
