This exposition depicts and portrays his 30 years’ life stream of continuous art creation, full of joy and thankfulness, accompanied by his lovely wife. As a 95-year-old student of realism in art, he will contribute his art creation to the development of children welfare philanthropy. The opening ceremony of the exposition was hosted by Ms. Jenny SHIH, Chairman of Nan Yan Fine Arts Association and President of FL. I Award of Arts in Taiwan.
