"A Poetic Beach"
Consciousness breeds new thinking/Melancholy beyond emotional calculation is anything but a dream/As loneliness and desolation reverberate throughout the world/in the graveyard of deconstruction/A sheer coldness unbearable by any soul emerges/The trace of a flaming silhouette/Is found on the tombstones of future/A glamorizing paradise in the east/Is the home of a stretch of beach praised in many poems/Which bear witness to the history of abstract thinking.

Dabeiyuzhou is particularly popular among Gen Z because of his cyberpunk style of artworks. Known as an "oriental cyborg", he has a large follower base in China. He started to create the "Text Gene Project" series in 2019.
