My parents named me Zhou Yi, the same name as The Book of Changes in the five classics of Chinese literature. The Book of Changes is considered a book in which the Chinese people recorded their life experiences with abstract symbols in ancient times, analyzed principles with the change theory of Yin and Yang, and tried to explain phenomena in the universe through the pattern of divination.

I grew up with the name and the revelatory mindset of the book. As an artist, my drawing practice and style are influenced by my name. Abstract symbols, graphic figures, and delicate objects became crucial parts of my illustration. Mountains and water become substantive metaphors for connecting concepts in-between space and my audience. In creating the process, I focus on the potential balance between each element, noticing the harmonies in this paradoxical universe.
