Misreading of life is the most direct source of inspiration for his artistic creation. He believes that the cognition of the misplacement of objects can reveal people’s natural understanding of the world. The artist sees each piece of art as an event composed of a complete process rather than just a state of the final presentation. At the same time, he brings himself into the work itself and constantly explores a new relationship with the viewer.
