Born in 1954 in an artistic family from Shanghai, Wilfred learned traditional painting from his father. He attended art schools in both China and Hong Kong where he started his contemporary work. Since 1977 he has been travelling and exhibiting in New York, Hawaii, Hong Kong, and Europe.
During the last years Amsterdam has become his second home and the gateway to bring his art to the world.
His work contains elements of both Eastern and Western culture and inspiration. By transforming themes of human figures, birds, tree branches, and rocks into lenear configurations and planes, he turned to abstract representation without designated forms. Rich colours, free brushwork and the natural flow and dripping of paint explore the quality of the medium to create a direct dialogue with the viewers.
His work has been widely exhibited in and collected by various public and private institutions.
