The theme of Zhang Hao's painting is inner feeling, also the true existence seen from his heart, it is the past, present, and future, at the same time, a combination of spirit and emotion.

Why? The inner feeling is the real path to the truth. Only art can achieve it. The power of art becomes a mental and spiritual strength.

Vision is the key to art, guided by feelings. Decomposed to forms by four principles: structure, shape, color, and brush strokes, finally, the completion of the works.

Core concept: everything emerges in the space.
