How do you define your art? What does it express? How does it reflect yourself?
I would like to cite some words by Mr. Wang Ruiting, a critic, saying, “In today’s art circles where conceptualism, photography and video art are getting popular, He Lihuai has kept his heart to realism, and explored his painting style, a combination of symbolism and fantasy. His painting is product of his self-dialogues. With his exquisite vocabulary of classical realism, he has depicted young girls who are lonely and beautiful. Through unreal space and non-reproducible colors, he has built a surrealistic dream world, and expressed modern people’s internal loneliness, worries, and desires to escape from the reality.” Painting has been my hobby since my childhood. Over the past decades, accompanied by painting, I have experienced ups and downs, and taken painting as part of my life! The reason why I still adhere to realism lies in the constant changes in my mind. Only through realism, can I put my imagination and passion in a free world to fly.
