Yue Xiao Fei 岳小飞

“My job as an artist is to capture the chemistry between relationships and the meeting of people. I find myself being endlessly fascinated by the fluidity and unpredictability of water. I suppose that the ideal life is just like water, taking the form of whatever vessel we happen to be in – it is liberating and unrestrictive. Painting has helped me to cut away the excesses of life, I no longer watch TV or mindlessly follow trends. In fact, I keep my social interactions to a minimum. To me, the most truthful artists paint from the depths of the soul, unfettered by the shackles of earthly motivations. We have to first be faithful to ourselves in order to move others with our art. The quickest way to them is through your heart. “
