Shen says he is still young and his artistic style is not fixed yet. His works that will go on show in New York seem to suggest that his painting style has changed from narrative to abstract.

He says he is not sure where he will go with his ink painting, but one thing he is sure is that the experiments with ink will continue.

Compared with his counterparts, most of whom are oil painters, Shen says ink painters may "feel lonely" in the contemporary art world. He cites the example of a group show of contemporary artists, in which he was the only ink painter. But he is glad that his experiments are helping the traditional art survive.

Jonathan Goodman, an art critic from the United States, writes in the show's preface that both artists push the boundaries of their art and bring new possibilities alive.
