Longtime education of Chinese traditional painting, West and east literature, history and political culture make a great effect on his muti-cultures art style. Growing up in a special Chinese factory community, the huge architecture frame and comparing small and exquisite personal living space become his inspiration of art.
Various ways of graphic art such as silkscreen print, hand drawing and embroidering thoughtfully and rationally record the detail of this changing ages ---the narrative story of the urban community and the gently disappearing public living space.
He graduated from China Academy of Art BA course in 2011 and soon going to UAL's Chelsea college of art and design to continue his MA course. His art creating start from his MA proposal subject about the collective memory of the Chinese urban community, and he did a series of illustration and picture book design based on this study.
To be separate from usually single and real-life narrative way, his work shows randomly and magic traces of people's fates under the breaking down by the architecture framework. The whole society just like a quantum, it has a functional and stable structure for macroeconomics; while it also has an unpredictable people's relationship by the microscopic view.
