Many of his expressive graphic works have a strong local flavour, the lines are refreshing, and the colours bright. A special characteristic of his prints is the allusion to pen and ink, and aside from printmaking, he also frequently paints in the medium of Chinese ink. Most of his works take the natural scenery of Sichuan Province as their subject. His style is not limited to that of the Chinese painting tradition, for he also utilizes Western pictorial devices and techniques.
