“Oil painting is a language from Western world. How to combine western oil painting with the ethos of contemporary China, thereby express the inspiration of life and emotion, is a common question that every Chinese artist would think about, as long as he or she realised this cultural difference and willing to make a different expression without giving up his or her own cultural attribute.”
