Feel and Conquer by yuumei Feel and Conquer by yuumei

Captioned video tutorial of this piece can be found on my Youtube at

I spent some time reflecting on my life, from the dysfunctional family of my childhood to my current career as an artist, and how this path has shaped me.

I guess part of my recovery is just taking in my life experiences, my emotions, the happiness and the pain, and turn them into art. And through the process, I learn and understand just a little bit more about myself and the world around me.

Art has always been a powerful outlet that helped me and others communicate our ideas and emotions. For all the aspiring and young artists out there, don't let anyone discourage you. Be it random strangers on the internet or your own parents, no one knows you better than yourself, and no one lives your life except yourself. So don't ever let anyone take that away from you, your emotions, your art, your sense of self.

Draw for yourself, create for yourself, live for yourself.

This is a meaningful piece. Of course the individual paintings we see look nice. I like how positive and negative emotions are both acknowledged as inspirations, but I also like how he has the blank canvas in front of him a he decides what his next move will be.

Hi Yuumei ! I know that you must be super busy, I was just wondering if there is a way to buy an "ultra" high resolution copy of "Feel and Conquer" and/or Re-Imagine.
At the online shop (if i understood correctly) I can only buy a printed version of it. I really like those 2 images and I thought they would look extremely good in my home.

Thanks! :)
