A love of nature and all creatures, and of the innocent and unparalleled influence that a mother plays in an adult’s world.

His mother’s love and influence is the source of his inspiration and creativity, It serves as the main subject of his work and has given him the strength and courage to fight against his disease for over 40 years.
“The love that my mother has given to me is the light in my life. She has guided me, and given me the strength to go through all those difficult times. She helped me build a positive and optimistic character. I always believe in the hope, love, innocence and kindness we are all born with and that we should never lose or forget. I want to use my work to reflect and pass my mother’s love to the world.” – Hao Wang
