About the Artwork

This painting captures a moment on Hunan Lu in the old French Concession, featuring the charming Rumors Coffee. I created this piece shortly after my grandmother's passing, which prompted my return to Shanghai for an extended stay, allowing me to reacquaint myself with the city of my birth. It was a glorious autumn, Shanghai's finest season, suffused with the sweet scent of osmanthus blossoms. During that time, I had an overwhelming sense of maturation and a pivotal decision took shape within me - to embark on a journey as an illustrator and create a book dedicated to Shanghai.
