"As an artist, I see the Apple is a phenomenon and affects many people. When I see a lot of people waiting in line and wait up to 8 hours to get a new Apple product, I see it as an inspiration for the artwork. To be honest I do not care about Apple products, but I am concerned about the motivation, desire and curiosity that affect the actions of a man, "said Liu in his email that was sent to Business Insider.
Liu hopes of celebrities can be involved in his art this time. One of the very expected Liu to participate is Bill Gates.
"I really hope Bill Gates can be contributed to Apple Watch on us. He (Bill Gates) probably is someone who hates Apple Watch than anyone, because they (Microsoft) can not make smart watches. He was also very supportive of the arts," said Liu.
