I got inspiration from my daily life, and my painting capture sensual, vividly and colourful parts. Especially, the images of Chinese contemporary young girls, enjoying their lives in big cities by covering their sensitive emotions under those fancy clothes and parties. The influence of western pop music on their romantic fantasy and the concept of being successful independent girls is significant.
I found it hard to find out special points in city culture in a brand new city, like my hometown Shenzhen. The similarities of new cities have blurred regional characteristics. Commons and mergers in culture have shown harsh conflicts between Chinese heavy traditions and pop cultures. And I am curious how the Chinese young city culture will be in the future.
Painting keeps my feelings strong, fresh and staying lasting. Currently, I paint on wood which offers a smoother surface than canvas. Therefore, brush marks are more visible. A lot of quick brush marks appeared in my works, they represent instant and unpredictable changes of time and emotion. I also like to use bright light colours, they help me creating a fantasy-like tune and emphasizing dramatic moments in daily life.
