Xiaoye Sun’s philosophy that underlines his emphasis with his work is that “in the field of art there is no right way to create, and that the process and results remain open-ended”
His works express not only his understanding of the world, love, and the human race, but also the desire of mankind to find their own inner peace. Xiaoye’s outstanding artistic sensitivity and creativity originates from his unique view of the world, and his reflections about life. He also draws much of his artistic inspiration and ideas from his studies of philosophy.
