"My painting mainly focuses on the human being inner thought. The"Politeia" series , presented at my solo tour exhibitions in Paris Gallery 1618 and Tokyo Kiyomizu Art 2018, is a narration of the Chinese Martial Arts spirit, depicted with the same values as heroism in Hollywood blockbusters. Another series exhibited in HK is about us living in current times. "Fishingman"series presents my homeland people's heros and their lives by the sea. Important, like the bad times of today with the earth undergoing COVID-19. What is the love/touching moment or memory?, what should artists paint for the world, what should we record in an artistic way? Artworks need to pay attention to the times. My painting, Special Love 2020, is an artwork that depicts an event happening in the time which we are living."

Di's art events including the big invitational project “TIMELESS” - Kexin Di & Guizi Gao Solo Exhibition in The Mary Ogilvie Gallery of Oxford University in U.K. (postponed because of COVID-19) 2020."
