The lifelong goal of my art is to depict the sincerely harmless and eternal communication of love between people and nature, people and people, and people and spiritual entities. I have always insisted on using poetic visual illusions to convey art produced by love, so that I hope my work can bring a sense of artistic beauty along with eternal happiness and present everlasting love.
I go to great pains to draw phantom-like scenes in order to achieve a juxtaposition of realistic characters with Chinese classical situations in my work, which gives the viewer an ambiguous and surreal feeling; deliberately arranging the characters' lives and the environment in my drawings, mixing a sense of reality and illusoriness; making realistic figures wander in aesthetic order and classical situations within the painting, by which dream and fantasy imagery can be presented, thus creating a colorful dream that is close to reality through elaborate compositional methods and images, while integrating both reality and fantasy with pen and ink. I depict my dream-like habitats with the fantasy of dreams and illusions, showing the truth of love in my dream world and conveying a poetic dream world by using a my own style.
