Artist Statement

As modern Chinese society blossoms, I am striving to celebrate our coming of age. My work embodies the human spirit and flaunts an unencumbered and carefree individual freedom of expression. We no longer have to endure personal humiliation, senseless sacrifice and stifling suffocation as a way of life. Youth is now united in victory. We enjoy the right to pursue our dreams and use our talents as we choose, to grow and to prosper spiritually. I combine brilliant colors, water, and fluid motion with vibrant content and energetic subjects in large-scale compositions. I believe that our future is bright and cheerful.

--Xiong Lijun, 2008
