Shanghai Tang Café, 2017
Acrylic on Canvas
150 X 450 CM (Triptych)
Bringing with it so much nostalgia,
Who would you be if you can turn back the hands of time,
When you look into the mirror, who do you see?
From a vintage TV, land line telephone, baby superman to a qibao lady,
Perception clashes with reality from what we always imagined who we would be,
The harmony of both, would actually create life bigger than what we can imagine,
Past and present, old and new,
Remember your roots,
Celebrate your legacy,
No matter how and where you are.
