    After my initial venture into NFTs with 'Boundless,' I've grown even more fascinated by the potential of Web3 technologies. The dynamic evolution of Bitcoin and the broader landscape of decentralized finance have inspired me to interpret the world's history from a digital perspective. 'Human' embodies this vision, melding my art with significant contemporary narratives” - Yue Minjun
