The themes and style of Liang’s creative work started to take shape during his high school years. Liang’s friends found them to be quite fantastic, even bizarre. Little did they know that his creatures were drawn from his dreams where they moved freely in space, full of joy, their forms changing at will. Since then, Liang has continued to believe in this magical world and has drawn much of his artistic inspiration from it. More recently, some people have found evil monsters in his drawings and concluded that his artwork should be read as a satiric commentary on the dark side of contemporary Chinese society. Liang makes no such claims, preferring to see his artistic creatures as “Joyblins” who live in a harmonious magical world of eternal joy that he has named “The Abode of Ultimate Happiness.”
