Lin Hanbing is a fish bone artist resides in Fujian province's Gulangyu island. As the originator of fish bone painting, Lin is the only fish bone painting artist in China, perhaps the world. Lin has been devoting his time and money to creating his artwork in the past twenty years. 

In his paintings, he tried to reflect social ills in the Chinese society. In his painting with lines from a poem that reads, "A fleece of cloud is floating above the valley, birds returning at night are getting lost", for example, he tried to depict the mindset of most Chinese in our times."We are like birds hunting for food - chasing after power, money and all material things, but our spirit has got lost, like birds that lost their way home," Lin said.
