He obtained his M.F.A. from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.

   

2005

The sight of his destructed workshop in Suojia Cun, inspired his first picture :

 

He painted among the debris.

 

This is the beginning of a long series of photos-performance: Hide in the City

The artist traveled to Italy, China, France, USA, to blend into the scenery
