He left to expand his knowledge in Japan, at Kawabata Art School, in Tokyo.



Back in Guangzhou, encouraged by the writer Lu Xun( 1881- 1936 ) who regarded


him as one of the most talented engravers of his time, he founded with 27 members :


The Modern Woodcut Society .



He went to Shanghai and produced many woodcuts.

Human suffering and political struggle are expressed in his works, such as


Roar China ! -  engraving made in protest of the Japanese invasion of China


and conserved at the Lu Xun Memorial in Shanghai.

   ( Graphic Arts Department ).
