He was born in Anxi, Fujian, China in 1969.In 1994 he graduates at Sculpture Department of Central Fine Arts Academy of Beijing, China.Now he lives and works in Beijing.A man without dignity can become a rude and primordial being, physically powerful but with a blank physiognomy, monument to the renunciation of intelligence.
