At a time with great economic changing, the state factories and minings are at the cross of either surviving or being eliminated. The working class is influenced the most. The confusion, bitterness, helplessness and hopelessness had oppressed and suffocated people. Wang Jiazeng was born in a workers' family and had worked in the factory himself. He has experienced more of the changes that not only on his family but also the whole country.

Wang Jiazeng revealed a soul-stirring vision of human dissimilation. He makes no exception of which the figures are all uniformed: all in blue and cadre cap. They can be either workers or farmers; neither government official nor merchants whose status are not identified and is only an abstract sign or symbol. Nowadays, Chinese are dressed of all sorts, but, in Wang Jiazeng’s works, people still look like are in 30 years ago, what whom wear has no individual character while all in blue tuinic and trousers. No one would forget that was one of the important marks of China then, therefore, Chinese were called "blue ants" by occidental. Wang Jiazeng's works shocks us and make us trembling that, too, urge us to have a deep self-reflection on our spiritual world and our living status.
