Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?

Li Songsong is a Chinese artist who tries to recreate some sort of public resource images of Chinese history today. His style is characteristic for an intensely colored impasto oils used on aluminum and canvas.
