The 68-year-old artist is a Guinness World Record holder for his great skills in using scissors to cut papers. His paper-cut works featuring Chinese characters vary in size from a square centimeter to thousands of square meters. He can cut papers with one Chinese character, ten Chinese characters, or a poem on, in one smooth motion. He can also make paper cutting skillfully with his eyes covered or his hands put behind his back.
