Even though I didn’t become a famous painter or designer my passion for art has never changed.
When I just heard that Robert Rauschenberg’s exhibition is about to take a place in UCCA (Ullen’s Center for Contemporary Art), I had a moral obligation to talk about his art on my platform.

His works are full of vivid colors and are very pleasant to gaze. The more you watch, the more details attract your eye. Some of his techniques imitate 3D and holography, so I would say he was pretty much innovator of his time. He used trash, found objects on the streets of New York, and by combining them together he created something new. By changing the context of the piece he transformed it to the art.
Also Rauschenberg’s collage techniques didn’t leave me indifferent.
“The 1/4 Mile or 2 Furlong Piece\” attracted my attention along with his photographs that was taken in China. Though actually more than half of his installations and combined paintings really resonated with my soul. I think Rauschenberg’s legacy is to become more popular after China’s exhibition, because his social message about world peace, tolerance and ecological disasters is relevant now more than ever.
