    Episode

    We have all been touched by a moment or scene and remembered it for a long time. How do you record or display these moments? Guangdong painter Wang Changgan chooses to do that through the form of quick sketch.

    Wang Changgan's choice comes from his intention to record the real and emotional world he sees with the most concise lines, as well as his wishes to show and explore more possibilities of sketching. He uses pen and paper to show scenes of happiness and sadness of the bizarre world in the form of quick sketch with his sharpness as a young artist.
