"Maintaining the essence of traditions and utilise them to enrich the contents of creativity is the unchanged principle in my journey on the path of ink painting for the past three decades. I strongly believe that the expressions and styles of Shui Mo art or ink painting would enter into a new lease of richness which was never found in the history of Chinese Art. This form of art would spread its wings and influences to all corners of the world especially Asian region. lt would, based upon the basic foundation of its Chinese traditional concept and develop further to new heights and richness. We have to command the fundamental techniques of ink painting in order to open up our scope of creativity and absorb the elements of artistic expressions to form our own unique style in producing works of high standard. This is a commitment that I shall never feel tired to adhere."
