I was born in 1971 in a small village situated on the edge of the beautiful Lake Taihu, China. At the very young age, I found myself passionate about painting. Back in the 70’s, the Chinese farmers were extremely poor. My parents could not afford to buy me a pencil and a piece of paper. So, I used tree branch to draw on the muddy floor or on the red brick wall with a piece of soft white stone found on the ground.
After the Great Cultural Revolution in China, there was a severe shortage of all kinds of teachers, especially art teachers. Finally, I was fortunate to meet a painting teacher when I was 17, whom I learned from for about 6 months before I was admitted to the Fine Arts College of Nanjing Normal University.
I believe I live for painting. My ideal is to become a real faithful painter. My most favorite artists are, to name a few, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, and Rembrandt. I admire that they dedicated their lives to realize their ideal. I learn from them that painting is about art, not about fame and fortune.
