Biography

I grew up after the Cultural Revolution, when China opened its doors to the outsideI grew up after the Cultural Revolution, when China opened its doors to the outsideworld. I had the opportunity to see European art: from Renaissance to Impressionistart, even Modernist art. I spent a lot of time copying the works of old masters frombooks during high school; I knew art would be my career in this life.After 7 years of professional training, I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree atBeijing Normal University. My painting focuses on people and landscapes. I like toplay with points, masses, lines, and color to create a sense of emotional atmosphere.I use any kind of material and technique as long as it helps express the feelingI want to communicate.I live in Vancouver with my wife since 2008.
