Before I was on edge, I came out feeling relaxed and it gave me something deep and profound to think about.

— Charlie Carrel (English professional poker player)

It helps me to be more centered and reminds me of something important about myself.
— Jazear Brooks (Founder and Computer Developer)

Lihui's painting was like when you went to a coffee shop, it wasn't just about the coffee....It was an inverse version of me and it really made me think.
— Eugene Shvarts (Co-Founder)

This helps me understand a dream of who I can be, so when I look at it, it's a motivating force to think about what can I be doing better to be a better version of myself.

— Braydon McLean (Data Scientist)

Not only the painting itself, but I also enjoy the conversation and everything included in the process.

Counterreality has existed since 2017. It was founded by Lihui Liang in San Francisco. It is an art gallery, a community, and a phenomenon to discuss important questions in life, such as: "Who are we?" "Why are we here?" "What is the purpose in life?" Now Counterreality is continuing to thrive in London, with a promise to lead to a clean creative lifestyle. #counterreality_painting
