We are inspired by the traditional Chinese ink wash paintings, poems, and music to create these imageries of dreams and memories. We believed in image storytelling that is full of life and simple characters could help us get a better understanding of Chinese philosophy and aesthetics.

The love we have that comes with our reflections brings out our attachment to the culture. It represents our attitude, our commitment, and our exploration of the possible representation of the philosophical in visual art.
