Barbaric Growth

Our generation live in years of peace, did not experience major social changes, so there's no continuation of painful memories in our mind. In my twenty years' experiences of life, I met many sorts of people: they try to survive, efforts to strengthen themselves, efforts to leave traces in this world, in my opinion, this status of people is a kind of touchable specific energy, the violent social transformation is people's feast of desires, people grow wildly in chaos and Disorders. I think this spiritual power of surging desire gives a unique aesthetic feeling.

All living creatures in my paintings are growing and extending, it looks like illusion of disorder, but there's another kind of beauty, every color and brush route bears my spiritual energy.
