Yu says they have put together Wei's oil and ink paintings on the same themes.

"This will give the audience a clear comparison showing what the artist did to bridge the two cultures," he explains.

"While he made oil paintings, he thought about the possibilities to integrate the style with the ink traditions. His work in the two fields was carried out simultaneously. He tried to find a connection between the two different languages of art, by which he looked to navigate ink art into the modern era."

Wei once compared the persistence of an artist with his or her work to that of a messenger pigeon following its flight route. "It flies through the clouds, the rainstorms, the winds and to a sunny sky. It flies up and down, sometimes turns around, or glides. No matter what, it heads for the set destination, with firmness and courage."
