My art is my memory.
I am not only an artist; I am an observer and recorder of history.
I use my brush to record the history of China in my lifetime, since 1965.
These events are truly important because they influence hundreds of millions of chinese people and have shaped my life.
So i continue to record them as truthfully as i can in red and black.
