"Chinese traditional culture has had a huge influence in my creation, for instance, the harmony between yin and yang, as well as the concept of essence, qi and spirit. The dynamic invisible qi not only exists in the traditional Chinese painting but also in my vibrant works. What my viewers can perceive are the vigour of life, the force of nature, confrontations between different species, and most importantly, the imbalanced relationship between nature and humans."
