About


This abstract painting draws inspiration from the colors and patterns of traditional Chinese festive attire. In the artwork, vibrant reds, auspicious yellows, and harmonious greens intertwine to create a strong visual impact and a festive atmosphere.

Red dominates the painting, rich and pure, reminiscent of the lanterns and couplets seen everywhere during the Chinese New Year, symbolizing joy and good fortune. Yellow appears bright and lively, symbolizing imperial dignity and wealth in traditional Chinese culture, and is also considered an auspicious color. Green is scattered throughout the painting, representing the vitality and tranquility of nature, adding a sense of life and peace.

The blocks of color and bold brushstrokes on the canvas exhibit the artist's daring creative approach. These colors do not merely spread across the surface but, through contrasts of density and sparseness, create a visually layered effect. This method of expression seems to reinterpret and abstract the embroidery and totems of traditional attire through the language of modern art, transforming them into cultural symbols that transcend time and space.
