Father's teaching at an early age

As a daughter of painter Peng Xiancheng, Peng started to learn painting from her father when she was three to four years old. Her father's guidance gave Peng a good start for her later commitment to painting.

"One of the things my father taught me is the attitude to painting. If you want to learn painting, you should love it first and never expect to get something from it. And once you've started, you must stick to it," Peng said when she recalled her father's teaching.

Like those children who were called "genius" at an early age, young Peng also met the difficulty of "losing talent quickly" after getting some awards. Her child-like style of painting can't follow her age and she stopped painting for a long time.

Only before the college entrance examination did she set her mind on painting again.

"At that time, I found painting was still the only thing I was really good at," she said.

Then Peng started studying painting at Nankai University in Tianjin and later began master's degree studies in philosophy and aesthetics at the same school.
