Artist Dialogues
For those looking to truly immerse themselves in the art, Artist Dialogues is a must. This initiative presents intimate art spaces where collectors and enthusiasts can get up close and personal with the works, and the creators. This is the place to be to learn about the inspiration and artistic methods that went in to each painting, gaining a deeper understanding of the works as a whole.

His works not only draw inspiration from Chinese arts and culture, but did magic in transforming centuries old tradition into modern, wearable, contemporary Chinese arts.
