As a youngster he was sent down to the countryside as a "sent-down youth" where he remained for five years. Beginning as an amateur artist his first major work was the woodcut series ‘Taking Root under the Tree'. In the 1970s he trained as a graphic designer and later studied under the influence of Li Youxing.[1]
