Many Chinese artists studying & living aboard believe that western abstracts dominate the contemporary landscape, they must abandon their tradition to cater to the art markets, the result is often disappointing.

Cai immerses in the conflict of these two different art cultures, and art environments did the opposite. He did no compromise, following only his instinct and vision, combining the best of his traditional training as a classical artist and his unorthodox use of paint on non-traditional materials and surface, experimenting with multi-media expression, Cai had successfully created his unique painting style using cellular structure and X-ray landscape. The result is a highly acclaimed collection sort by collectors.
