I am an artist who follows a multifarious discipline. My portfolio consists of calligraphy, cartoon, painting, digital imagery, drawing and prints. Together they made up as a whole which manifest my artistic aspiration. Intellectually I am configured as a bilingual and oriental/occidental human being. My works thus embrace all of those different facets of humanity. Some themes of the cartoons are Vietnam War, futuristic warfare, Roman-Barbarian war, ancient Chinese warfare, etc. In my calligraphy, there are poetries of my favorite ancient Chinese anthology as well as my own writings and thoughts. Painting is by far my biggest ambition manifested. It consists of rhapsodic and ecstatic visions I had during my artistic odyssey.
More about the Artist:
I was born in 1982, Shanghai, China. I moved to New York City in 1994 with my family, and have settled here and obtained all of my subsequent education since junior high school in the United States. I attended F. H. LaGuardia High School of the music and arts in 1997. During my senior year there, I was awarded with a full-tuition Jerry Seinfeld Scholarship in order to attend the School of Visual Arts. I graduated from SVA in 2004 with a BFA degree, and was selected to have a two-person exhibition with one of my classmate in the SVA Gallery under the title of 1 Painter 1 Sculptor. In 2005, I was honorably awarded with a fellowship from the New York Foundation of the Arts under the category of Drawing. Today, I live in New York City and enjoy artistic creativity passionately.
