About the Artist

Science and technology play very important roles in this modern world, as the result, the relationship between human beings and nature increasingly alienated. However, I believe many people have a “natural utopia dream" deep inside their hearts. This allow them to fight against the persecutions and basements from real life. It may be mysterious, unknown, fantastic, profound, and even full of fear but always beautiful.

My paintings show the audience a personal, mysterious and unknown world. I work with a variety of techniques and medium to create an idealised natural landscape, rich in meanings and visual pleasure. I explore the boundaries between figuration and abstraction, memories and dreams. My artworks describe the relationships between reality and imagination, as well as the ones between outside world and the inside world full of feelings and ideals.
