Further information

I am always excited and inspired by the vibrancy of city life. The activities continue to be repeated again and again and will never end, yet the repetitions will never be the same.

This painting reflects my observation of the world of the street and the spirituality of human beings in the crowded urban landscape.

Using just black and white as a medium, these blurring strokes reflect my new understanding of life. I have come to believe that everything in real life will become less distinct and images stored in our memories will become blurred by the passing of time.
