The bunny that he saw carried his miss and hope brought by the new baby. Since then, especially after the birth of his son, he began to draw bunnies and refer to them as people.

The Story of Feng Xu
Feng Xu was born in a small town in Guizhou Province, China. In pursuit of higher artistic attainments, he went to Beijing, the capital of China and a big city, for graduate school and stayed. In China, people call those who come from other cities to work in Beijing as "Beijing Drifters". Because of the "Hukou" system, China's residential system, and the traditional concept with stable residence, Chinese are not fans of "drifting". It feels like they are drifting their way through life without a true sense of belonging. As a young artist from a small town, surrounded by skyscrapers and wandering alone, Feng Xu began to doubt who he was and how in the world he would survive here. The post-modern art is reflective and critical, and Feng Xu is also taught to be so. Therefore, his early works, like many post-modern art pieces, are full of distortions, criticisms, exposing the darkness of human nature, trying to cry out through distortion, eager to be seen or heard.
Miss U Bunny: Manifest the trivial beauty in daily life with love
The post-modern style lasted until his son came to his life. The moment when Feng Xu and the bunny looked each other in the eye, he was touched. People may be able to look at each other closely for half an hour or even an hour but looking at an animal so close is a very strange experience. Even though it only lasts for two seconds, the two seconds felt like a century. After returning home, Feng Xu kept thinking about that bunny and decided to draw it down. He simply used a shabby canvas, painted it white with acrylic, and roughly sketched the bunny with merely a few brushstrokes. Maybe he poured his love for his wife and his expectation for his son into the painting. Everyone who sees the bunny thinks it is very vivid and lifelike.
After the birth of his son, the theme of his work completely focuses on bunnies. "When you see children's clear and innocent eyes, you would wonder that the world is so beautiful, even though the world is so awful", Feng Xu once said. In 2014, Feng Xu formally started his bunny series. At the beginning, the bunnies he painted were very cute and adorable like children. Later, his bunnies started to show various emotions like his friends, such as joy, sorrow, distance, ecstatic after making a fortune, etc. It is a human world demonstrated by bunnies.

Xu Feng believes that good painting or handwriting skills can only make you a good painter or calligrapher, yet it cannot make you a good artist. Artists should always aim higher for spirit pursuit and creativity. Good art works should be closely related to our daily life. Your art is your life. Sincerely express what the era makes you feel and express it in the way you are best at it. This is the art Feng Xu wants to pursue.
Bunny Charity Plan: Pass on love to others
Feng Xu has drawn various bunnies, such as bunnies that are cute and childish, a family portrait of four bunnies, a bunny wearing a mask, or a bunny wearing a suit yet standing in the jungle. The last bunny, Feng Xu once said, refers to himself. The jungle behind the bunny refers to his rustic hometown, and the suit refers to his big city identity. The jungle and the suit point out a conflict, just like the conflict between his current big city identity and his childhood in the small town. Now, he can simply accept this conflict and unnaturalness, face it with a smile and look at it like an outsider. He is optimistic towards life and keeps influencing his wife (a fashion designer), mother (a tailor), and father-in-law (a carpenter), trying to help them become artists and discover arts in the things they make.
The poverty-stricken hometown is never an identity burden, but the place where he wants to feed back with love. Back then, when he came to Beijing from Guizhou, he was funded by others. Now, he wants to pass on the love to the students there. In 2018, he held an exhibition called "The Warm Bunny", donated half of the income to his alma mater, and set up the "Bunny Charity Plan" to support poor students with excellent grades. He sees this plan as part of his art, demonstrating the bunny spirit, conveying love and warmth. Feng Xu said: "God helps those who help themselves and gives them love and warmth."
Bring the Miss U Bunny to the NFT World
In August, 2021, Feng Xu decided to mint 24 exclusive Miss U Bunnies as NFT. The NFT market is a borderless circulating market, where all artists, collectors and art appreciators are gathered in one place. He wants to let the bunnies meet more people around the world and bring warmth to them. The first 18 NFTs will be auctioned on OpenSea for two weeks. These 18 NFT artworks were created during COVID-19, which commemorate the special time of people covering masks and the desire to breathe fresh air and live in a healthy world.
