General Manager of
Shenzhen Fine Art Institute
"If the people of a country have a dream, then this country will be
able to develop in a much healthier way. Ever since my youth, I have
been engaged in cultural politics and building a career in the arts.
Over the past 30 years, China's rapid economic development has been
accompanied by dramatic political, social, cultural and environmental
changes. Within this climate of thoroughgoing changes, a change in
culture is particularly important. Mere material wealth is not what
Chinese dream is all about. The ideal of our cultural workers is the
creation of cultural undertakings which will further promote the
overall healthy development of our society.
Artists tend to express their ideals through their artistic creation. I
am a painter and have been focusing on the ink painting in the recent
years. Quiet, pure lotus pond, which symbolises peace and harmony and
has always been loved by the Chinese literati, expresses a vision of an
ideal world. In my work I blend the traditions of Chinese ink painting,
oil painting, printmaking and sculpture with contemporary forms of
mixed media and video art. My goal is to continue the long history of
Chinese ink painting through my artwork and communicate the spirit of
tradition within the contemporary context."
