Art has the power to transform, influence, educate, inspire, and motivate others. More and more I am completely impressed by art more and more. Beside the initial intention of collecting art works from all around the world as a value added investment, I have started to attend art exhibitions and take painting as a hobby.

艺术具有转变、影响、教育、启发和激励他人的力量。随着我不断从中得益,我愈加对此确信。从起初的初衷是收藏世界各地的名人艺术作品来作为一项增值投资。在当今各种政策紧张和复杂的形势下,艺术收藏终将让您受益匪浅。渐渐的,我开始萌生发展画廊等艺术品收藏和交易的这门生意经,也开始培养和习练起绘画而作为一种兴趣爱好。 I believe art can change the world by changing you. I believe art can fill up your life and soul. The art in Ad Places project in New York is now a beautiful act of civil disobedience. New Yorkers decide avoid the thousands of advertisements that is in every corner by replace the ad with an art piece.

我相信艺术能通过改变您来改变世界。艺术可以充盈您的生活和灵魂。纽约“广告改头换面成艺术”项目的表现形式和精神,如今看起来更象征着人们对艺术的渴望,和一种集体呐喊的行为艺术。纽约人将街头巷尾的广告位替换成艺术作品,勇敢地来表达想逃避铺天盖地的广告霸陵的愿望。 Artist Caroline Caldwell and writer/curator RJ Rushmore launched a project in January and called it Art in Ad Places. Each week, they replace ads in payphone booths and bus stops with art that they've commissioned from 52 artists, each representing a unique background and style.

艺术家Caroline Caldwell和作家/馆长RJ Rushmore在今年一月发起了这个名为广告改头换面成艺术活动。每周,他们会把公用电话亭和公交车站的广告换成从52个艺术家那儿筹集的艺术品,每一件都背景不同,各具特色。 Whether you live in a small town or a huge city, one thing is for sure: Everyone is fed up with the constant stream of ads in public space that were often dominated by a few rich corporations decide what messages we're exposed to. A lot of ad messages are incredibly environmentally damaging, or they encourage unnecessary spending.

无论您生活在小乡镇或大城市,有一件事是肯定的:每个人都饱受公共空间泛滥,和广告霸陵之苦,这些广告通常掌握在少数大公司中,我们看到什么都取决于他们。很多广告上的信息都会对环境造成危害,要不就在鼓励一些无用的花费。 Art is not only what you see, but  also what you make others see.  We really need to normalize that, when you look around , you're going to see something wonderful. Isn't it exciting?

艺术不仅仅只为您自己所见,更要让更多的人看到。因此,我们真的需要规范生活环境和生活方式,当您环顾四周,您看到的都是精彩绝伦的东西。这样的体验不叫人激动吗? I’m currently managing the  TCT A club's art gallery's preparation in Shanghai and Vancouver for the art collection and exhibition. Looking forward to sharing more with you later.

目前,我正在筹备上海和温哥华<<茶非茶>> A俱乐部的艺术画廊,旨在收藏和展示艺术品。期待着日后与您分享更多。
