Cai Cai 蔡猜



My name is Cai Cai. I’m teaching at the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts, and besides art teacher, I’m a painter. I believe, creativity is like a game, especially in some large-scale project. An artists needs to think from many perspectives, not just the composition or the meaning they are trying to convey. In my opinion, a good picture must be supported by strong logic in addition to the instinctive emotional impulse, and it brings interesting challenges.

I often bring a small painting box in my travels, and it brought me many special experiences. For example, I painted on the streets of San Francisco for two months, driving around with my friends, having a lot of trouble but a lot of fun, and even had a small solo show there. I also used to draw on the cliffs of Rongcheng with stones tied to my painting box, so it’s not blown away by the wind. Took some time to draw in the sunny Ho Chi Minh Park. Rode a scooter through the alleys of Chiang Mai, inventing a way to carry a painting on my back. For me, painting can be very serious and frivolous at the same time, and I find ways to always keep it fresh and exciting.
