藝術是無所不在的，無論是自己判斷或是別人認同，任何事物都可以成為藝術,甚至每個一個行為都可能成為藝術。從早期歐美西方繪畫藝術對美學的觀點只有特殊身分者，才有機會參與接觸如: 皇室、貴族或教會者 ; 而繪畫藝術大多是具象表現，每一個時代都含有美的意涵。在觀念藝術和行動藝術裡，漸漸把藝術概念改變成大眾化且易於想像。於是藝術隨著時空背景的變遷對美學的認知有所改變，讓現代藝術與古典藝術產生明顯的差異，那就是對美學的觀點因著時代性的想法，產生了不同的思維，因此藝術變的無邊無界，令人難以定義，而藝術家也開始嘗試的創作及各種欣賞的方式，材料及觀點。而作品也變得越來越抽象。在現今21世紀資訊和電腦的普及的年代,雖然繪畫可以藉由電腦0與1的數字精準繪出所要的圖樣，但卻無法的描繪出藝術家內心真正精神層面的感受，因此對於藝術家而言是表現個人的風格而不是一昧模仿，然而模仿卻是基礎訓練的主要過程，從經典中學習,進而轉化成屬於自己的藝術創作。藝術家的內涵與氣質是隨著經驗的累積不斷的創作，不斷的思考產生自信超越傳統，然而藝術家對環境要有敏銳的觀察力 ; 因此創作是一種動力的來源，具有先知性、未來性，所做出的藝術顧及現實面的需求及精神層面的感受。並且作品受到群眾的認同，引領社會風潮才能脫穎而出，才是藝術內涵的真意。因此有內涵的藝術創作才能經得起時代反覆省思回味。
丁雄泉的畫風一再蛻變從具象到抽象，都給人穩重,安定的感覺，這些因素來自他努力不懈及卓越的素描能力。並善用多樣中西合併的自創筆觸，以實驗的手法表達他的理念和豐富的想像力。而在他的創作過程中，通常是一氣呵成的，且筆觸不斷增加直到內容完成。因為他會根據當下的心情環境之變化，繪畫展現飛揚且意外的衝擊力，豐沛的情感隱含著東方含蓄的精神且極富爆發力，以墨線勾勒人物伴隨豔光四射的花草，以及對模特兒的表情變化,使畫面有所增減，出其不意的創作出與原先不同的畫面，他的畫筆與色彩的關係也會出現不斷跳動，且有許多創作模式會交織呈現,不停地變動著，因此有 ”採花大盜” 之稱號。在他的作品裡使用較大面積的色塊當作基底,並且巧妙的運用噴灑技法交織彩繪出獨特的畫作,丁雄泉的作品裡充分融入了西方眼鏡蛇派的狂野色彩, 他利用東方水墨的潑彩技法成為他獨特的繪畫風格，並且充分利用紅色、黃色、藍色和綠色的特性，在他藝術創作過程中多見女人，花草，貓與鸚鵡為題材，並且他也對人體描寫的處理非常出眾，藉由粗獷的構圖與細膩的筆觸之間，展現女人的韻味。他的畫作通常是一位裸女伸展優雅的姿勢,嘗試營造美麗的氣氛，藉由鮮豔的色彩與無瑕的人體，讓人格外感到怦然心動。雖然佈局及用色相當簡單，並把愛情的甜蜜歡愉用好溫馨好可愛的方法說出來。在他畫中讓觀者進入一個無限想像的空間，每個觀者都可以與畫者進行溝通，發展出各種獨有於觀者與畫者之間的感覺,且往往給人巨大的視覺衝擊。

Art is everywhere; it is arts whatever my agreement or other thinking. Anything could be art; even it is behaviour. From the early of Western art point of view there was only the special status in society could contact aesthetic. Such as: Royal family, nobles or church ministries. Each era is contained different meaning of beauty and art painting are presented Figurative Expressionism in the early of time. Both the conceptual art and the action art gradually have changed the concept of art to popularisation and easy to imagination. So the time passed and changed awareness of aesthetics as well as modern art and classical art produced obviously differences. That is an aesthetic point of view; because of the time make difference way of thinking. Therefore, the art become boundless and differential to define it. Artists begin to create and appreciate diverse of method, material and ideas. The artworks also become more and more abstract. Now days it is 21st century, although the artist can draw desired pattern via 0 and 1 precise figure in computer, but it can not depict the artist inner feelings of sprit. Therefore, imitation is main presses the basic training for the artist. However, it is not instead of reimbursing to imitate, to display personal style is important for the artist. The artist learns from the classics and transform into their own creation. The artist inner temperament is continuously to accumulate experience by creation the artworks as well as they constantly rethink to produce their self-confidence and go beyond the tradition skill. However the artist have keen eye to observe on the environment; therefore creation is one of the power source, which are contain prophetic and futurity. Additionally the artworks take into account layer of reality and spirit feeling. As well as the work needs to recognise by the masses and become a wave of unrest to lead the society trend. That is true meaning of art. Consequently this kind of the artworks may pass through the test of the time.
In the Walasse Ting’s art painting style repeatedly transformed from realistic to abstract. People appreciate with his artwork always feel steady and stable, above of these factors came from his extraordinary sketch ability.. He was good to use his self-owned style of drawing to display his abundant idea and imaginative power. Furthermore, he usually painted with broad strokes until completed whole picture in the first process. He would accord to the change of mood environment to print his works. His paintings always show flying, unexpected impact and rich emotions as well as, contain spirit of Oriental and highly explosive. Using abundant colour draw beautiful characters and brightly flowers. His brush and colour were continuity to beat as well as there are many creative skills interlacing to present on his work.

He used bigger block in his work as basic of colour and he was very clever to use interweaving spray skill to print unique paintings and he successful used red, yellow, blue and green features in his work. Walasse works fully integrated into the wild colour of the Cobra. In addition, he was usually to use women, flowers, cats and parrots in his painting of theme. He was also outstanding and precise to description body. He used rugged composition and delicate strokes to show women’s charm. His paintings are usually a Nude women stretching with elegant posture, try to create a lovely atmosphere via the bright colour and a flawless naked women so that, the paintings make viewer exciting.

He was really well known in the world in 60 to 70 ages. Walasse Ting and Wou-ki Zao often be compared as well as, they were elected as the highest two of the famous Chinese painters. His artworks have sense of humor and people could relax to think of the art rather than erotic. However, female’s body was the core value of his artistic expression and creative inspiration.
