Jiayue has been focusing on pencil drawing for several years. Meanwhile, his works range over film, installation, and illustration.

Jiayue began to study drawing in 2014. From 2019 to 2020, he made a series of drawing titled Lightness and Weight, in which a strong sense of nostalgia can be found. In 2021, his interactive installation Printing Poems was exhibited in China Academy of Art. The poems printed in the project were from his published poetry collection. In the same year, a derivative work named Can we go back to Eden? was shown in Seeyoo Space in Hangzhou. At the end of 2021, an exhibition of his pervious drawings was held in Restart Plan Space in Hangzhou.

From 2021 onwards, Jiayue has shifted to a more conceptual practice. Please Mind the Gap, a series of drawing questioning perception, was presented separately in The Dundas Street Gallery in Edinburgh and Espacio Gallery in London. Now he is engaged in moving image that investigates intimacy and human nature.
