Shu talked with China Daily at an art museum named after him in Beijing. The five-story structure displays Shu's artworks produced in the past decades, covering paintings, installations, sculptures and photos.

Shu was born in Hunan province, where he learned ink painting when he was a child. When he enrolled in the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, he chose oil painting as his major. However, the artist says he never sets limitations on his art. Inspired by versatile artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, he hopes his art can be diversified.

Since January 2020, Shu has painted a picture every day. No matter how busy he is or where he is, he completes the task. He has produced more than 1,200 paintings.
