Ze Ze was born in Hong Kong, an artist with a unique vision in capturing dream-like and
mystical scenes in watercolor. A style which truly draws the view in to a story, a journey
though the painting.
Artist Statement
Birds is the most fascinating subject to paint, either they are moving, flying or stay still.
They are beautiful no matter they are in flocks, or alone. I always like to paint birds in a
different way ,to capture the atmosphere they are in, their essence, rather than painting
their true anatomy. I like to deliver a story behind my every painting, to present a certain
mood that I experiencing, for happiness, for sadness, for a delicate feeling that melt one’s
heart. By looking at them, I always feel that there is something that they want to say.
