Artist Statement

I am a young Chinese friend from Xiamen, China. My hometown and America’s Sarasota are sister cities. I like to meet new friends. I drew myself with a young Sarasota friend as if we had our picture taken together. I hope I will get the opportunity to exchange conversation with young Sarasota friends about each others’ countries, current news, our friends and the latest trends.
