Painting: Oil on Canvas.
From a young age, I was influenced by my father and his collection of Chinese calligraphy and antiques.
In depth, my father taught me how to apprehend and appreciate the beauty of Chinese paintings.
Because of this influence, I was aspired to promote the perseverance of the Chinese Art culture by using the techniques of western painting I've learnt, coupled with what I see and integration of techniques I've mastered from Chinese calligraphy and Chinese painting.
I spent about two to three years on fine tuning these techniques with mixed media.
In the beginning, my paintings had vibrant colors, then gradually toning it down, bringing more resemblance to the Chinese paintings, yet color remains.
I want the viewers of my paintings to understand, the paintings themselves has the greatest significance, not me. The essence lies in the techniques and colors.
In the present, many artists pursue on a specific character as their subject and the background may change giving the subject a different story.
For me, I want to go beyond that, so I don't stick to a certain theme for my subject. I believe if you don't try to go beyond and seek differentiation, you can't distinguish yourself from other artists. You can't see into the future, and how far your creation can go.
For this reason, I believe an artist's success stems from being able to grasps the attention of viewers, I want to captivate the viewers with my techniques and individuality, and then, from there, they want to find out more about me.
