His photographs carry the self-confession of the photographer’s cognitive world. From the moment of looking directly at the lens, the subject has completed their story through the visual language.

What he likes most about photography is the decisive moment. The unique picture conveys a story that is visually and verbally indescribable. His emphasis has mainly been on gathering the facial expression of ordinary people and a strong attraction to the beauty in nature. He documented the mass democratic protest in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square in 1989.

His graphic design works aren’t complicated or cluttered, most with an appreciation for well-crafted design and embellishments. His design style is as simple as reading visual elements 1, 2, and 3 in order. He tried to have more content in the place of intensive and fewer details in the place of few and far between so that he created a balanced visual structure by extreme contrast. He prefers clean, clear, and strong designs. He believes the simplest design can illustrate a concept in a more direct way while keeping the integrity of the concept intact.

His motion graphics is a new level of graphic design. He integrates still graphics to life with animated visual effects and cinematic techniques. His goal is to convey a message or evoke an emotional response from viewers. Motion graphics can effectively support his concept with mixed visual elements.

The animated graphics will also express his intuition and subconscious. His fractal artwork is a new type of abstract art, a new art form that by calculating fractal objects and represents the calculation results as still images. His fractal artwork carries personal emotional catharsis. He likes the way the produces unimaged shapes and saturated colors.
