In most cases, Xiaochun starts with a classic,
then digitally cuts away at the image, inserting the present and, in some cases, his own
likeness. It’s a transformation he achieves through a
combination of 3D modeling, plotting, and hand-drawing. Typically, the
Beijing-based artist starts on the computer, working with 3D graphics and models
to manipulate the image; from there, he hand-draws the scene onto canvas.
