In 2017, Bin began attending traditional Chinese art classes where he was able to learn more about techniques involved in making Chinese paintings. During this time Bin established and grew his portfolio in the ArTech Collective Studio program located in the Westchester Square area of the Bronx. Bin painted symbolism from his Chinese heritage, including bamboo trees, zodiac signs, pandas and dragons. He often depicted a woman figure in his works, who he shares came from his imagination. This figure wears many hats, some works she is represented as a warrior who carried a sword, and in others an innocent schoolgirl.

During the pandemic Bin took it upon himself to perfect his craft, spending countless hours online learning more about traditional Chinese art forms. This research led Bin to take a new approach to his works. As the studio program reopened Bin for the first time brought traditional Chinese tools to keep there, including, Xuan brushes and paper and traditional Chinese ink and watercolor. Using these new materials Bin has created vast landscapes, peacocks, lotus flowers and cherry blossoms.

Every so often Bin recreates his imagined woman using his new materials. Bin’s landscapes are rich, saturated in watercolor and ink. Meticulous with his color choice, Bin requires an assistant to pour paints and move the paper around the table. Due to his physical constraints, Bin often asks that the rice paper be placed on top of his lap so he can make sure each corner of the page is covered. Despite any obstacles Bin faces he has managed to prevail in his artwork, impressing everyone around him. In November 2021 Bin presented his works in public for the first time at The Other Art Fair Brooklyn.
