“That Day”

Be Fast, Beautiful, and Rhythmical!
“Boxing Painting”, the realization of my three art principles was done in the first time in US in January 17, 2003 at ISE Cultural Foundation Gallery in NY.
My gloves with red and green paints hit hard on the 8-meter canvas painted fluorescent yellow.
I moved from right to left at a blistering speed filling the canvas space with my punches.
I completed the painting at a dash for only three minutes.
I was totally covered by paint.
The viewers of the event were shocked, moved. They showed their tears and gave me a storm of whistle and applause.
That day is a wonderful anniversary for me.
