Hua is blending the comedic clown style of China's Peking Opera with Western mime, and has been perfecting his art for 38 years.

"Many years ago, I was a magician. At one time, I happened to see Chaplin on an outdoor screen and I became fascinated by him," Wang told China News Service.

He continued to say,

"Chaplin's iconic duck walk is the most difficult to imitate, requiring total coordination. You have to both exaggerate and be funny. After six months of practice, I thought I had mastered it, but after two years, I still felt inadequate... I didn't really master it until after ten years of practice."

"I don't want to just imitate Chaplin," Wang shared. "I want to use my accumulated experience to add new innovations to my imitation."
