I fell in love with painting since I was a child. In painting, I have the freedom to feel the world. communicate with myself and express myself. I started professional training in middle school. And finally, I become a professional artist, exploring the contemporary oil painting. I find inspirations for through journalistic pictures, historical pictures, and documentaries. I create characters and narratives through my own form. I am all free. Visually, I translate the power of objectivity, simplicity and directness that I feel into my creations, pulling apart the distance between the original and the facsimile to create the space for imagination.
