Painted Turtle


In certain regions of China, street vendors employ colored turtles to capture the attention of children. However, it is well-known that these colors pose great harm to small animals. To address this issue, I created a theme using books and affixed colored covers from magazines onto tortoise shells as a representation of these elements.

  • Artist Statement

    I create art that relates to my daily life and focuses on my personal experiences. In addition to art, another passion of mine is sociology. I hope to vividly express the complexities of the development, structure, and functioning of human society to the public through my brush. As a painter, I am better at expressing my thoughts with my brush than with language. When I encounter problems or have strong emotions, I use painting to find ideas and soothe emotions. I pay attention to detail and use paint to call attention to these topics. As a creative person, I'm always looking for new materials and techniques to incorporate into my work.

    I believe that art can create change, and in that way, artists are leaders in society. I believe that innovation can make art soulful and eternal. I embrace challenges as a creative force that helps me reach a higher level in my work, and I hope my work communicates freedom, hope, and empathy to you.
