Personal philosophy:

I cherish tradition because it is created thousands of years by human culture. That is why I love Chinese Bronze so much. The rusts and spots seem telling stories when you touch them. You can see that each of painting contains elements of bronze. I would say, I am a Chinese Bronze painter in the Iron Age.
