Coming from a vast city in China, where the culture is so different in comparison to London, almost everything about this capital city appears new. It is the uniqueness of London that catches my attention. In the process of exploring London, I find that there are a variety of people from different cultural backgrounds. It is intriguing how people and even pets adapt to this city in order to live in such an active and confined urban space, one that appears to have a very different way of life to the one which I am used to. I think about the relationship between people and the city in comparison to the aggregation and separation currently happening today. Through my paintings I attempt to convey my apprehension of the city’s indifference and the apparent gap that exists between people.
