From the artist:
Urban sketching tells a visual story of the moment within each image. I often carry with me simple sketching tools like a couple of fountain pens, or I would simply pick up sticks from the ground, and sketch down what I see while I’m on the road, capturing the cultural and social scenes and phenomena in cities of villages. The satisfaction of capturing images in the moment is what every artist searches for.

Sketching has become a popular form of drawing in recent years. Its essence is to quickly capture what you see in front of your eyes, and heavily relies on the theory of perspective drawing to create correct form and structure. Perspective drawing provides a foundation for the accuracy of dimension, and is the basis for a sensible and intelligent image structure. Style-wise, I have preferred to use dried branches or sticks dipped in ink to create quick, carefree and lively lines in my drawings, while expressing my thoughts and ideas on the local culture or history, instilling a sense of rich humanity into my creations.
