Weilu loves to paint her own wild and whimsical ideas with lines. She works mainly with a computer and a graphics tablet. Digital painting gives her the freedom to experiment with dynamic and static collages and drawings. She is fascinated by the graphic transformation of flat silhouettes. In frame-by-frame animation, she sees a possibility that lies somewhere between stability and instability.

More than still lifes or landscapes, Weilu likes to observe various cultural phenomena in human society, to analyze in depth the purpose of various actions and words that people confide in online or in real life, and to focus on the strengths and weaknesses of the present. These hobbies are the inspiration for her work and she hopes to use various artistic metaphors to present these dilemmas to the viewer. The viewer's reactions and reflections are also part of her work.

The Bearing Tree WIPA merchant came to a village that was born from a big tree. People threw leaves under the tree and one by one leaf dolls grew out of the tree and then fell to the ground and became part of the village. The merchant found this so profitable that he sold many beautiful golden leaves, which the people picked up, and as a result the people who grew out of the tree all looked the same, and they got lost in the beautiful merchandise and the same appearance.
