|| This series of works is my favorite long-term transition to oil painting portraits. They show daily life through the well-known characters with typical beauty. Using the basic elements of painting: composition, color theory, perspective, I try to create dynamic work, and thus convey the state of their lives and survival experience. My goal is to show the essence of contemporary art, fully and effectively reflect the present and the true face of my subjects.
