Can you share with us any story behind your art project?
您能与我们分享您的艺术项目背后的任何故事吗?

I was born in a comic shop. I grew up reading comics and watching Japanese animation during my elementary school. My father used his comic techniques to guide me how to observe, how to paint, how the human body looks, how to look at it, how to understanding the stories in cartoons and movies, this journey deeply affects my future desire for aesthetics.
我出生在一個漫畫店,小學時期都是閱讀漫畫和看日本動畫長大,父親從小就以他的漫畫技巧指導我如何去觀察,如何去畫畫,人的身體真正的樣子,透視的方法,如何理解卡通和電影裡的故事,這個旅程深深的影響我未來的對於美學的渴望。
