Dream Chaser / 追夢人
Starting out with nothing except a burning passion to follow their dream, the father of Modern Chinese art, Wu Guanzhong and the successful :phunk studio today is a glittering example for me as an artist to be fearless and tireless, despite being penniless and in charging towards an endless dream.
Both Wu Guanzhong and :phunk studio were a huge influence on my work. The contemporary Chinese painter has always been a thinker and philosopher who use art as his medium for expressing complex ideology. :phunk studio’s passion for art whose works visually conveyed the idealism of every true-blue artist which is to 'do what you love' has inspired me with unlimited motivation and peerless endurance. They constantly challenge the conventional notion and definition of the artist and the commercial design studio by blurring the boundaries between both, mixing neo-pop art ideology with postmodernist design sensibilities. Their cross-disciplinary approach is best described as "an aesthetic collective consciousness" focused on experimenting with new approaches to visual expressions.
As Wu Guanzhong, once said, “There is no boundary in terms of art; art belongs to the world, not to a certain nation or country.” It all starts with your desire taking the first step chasing towards your dream.
