The Early Years

In my early pieces, I shared the artistic eye and ideology along with many of my Chinese artistic peers. I had grown up with a disdain for the Cultural Revolution. It forced me to create pieces of art without political propaganda subjects for my artwork. Here, you can see a representative of that period. The subjects for these works come from Tibet and the ethnic minorities residing in the China countryside. During my travels, my interest was peaked by the way people dressed, colors, faces, and architectural styles. These influences were visual, as opposed to cultural, religious, or historical.

  1. I do like the manner in which you have presented this particular matter and it does offer me some fodder for thought. However, through everything that I have experienced, I just trust when the actual reviews pack on that folks stay on issue and in no way get started upon a tirade involving some other news du jour. Yet, thank you for this fantastic point and although I do not really agree with the idea in totality, I regard your perspective.
