Though Taoism religious paintings can be seen in many Tao temples yet they are merely paintings depicting Taoismdeities which are not relevant to Lao Tzu's teaching----in Lao Tzu's teaching there is no mention of gods and ghosts.In 1972, in respect of this odd fact so I decided to found the school of Tao Painting in accordance with Lao Tzu's actualidea: The Nature and the movement of Yin and Yang. In the beginning of my proclamation of the founding of Tao paintingit actually attracted many Hong Kong intellectuals to talk about it. In 1977, one of the biggest news paper in Hong Kong,Sing Tao News Paper published a full page introduction about my Tao painting. It was again the talk of the town. As time goes by, I have been exhibiting my Tao paintings in many galleries of different countries and regions, andit was all well covered by the medias. In l983 the Hong Kong Hotel had used 1,500 Tao prints and a dozen of originalsfor all their rooms. It aroused the attention of the Hong Kong art community, immensely. However, in the turn of the21st century China has become stronger and stronger rapidly, yet it also nourished many corrupted officials and all sort of impostors etc. Some of them even insinuate that they are the real Tao painting artists withoutthe actual  achievement of acclaimed  masterpieces such as the "One Stroke Rooster" and "Meditation" etc.
