Artist Bio

(b.1975, CHINA)

 

Striving to be an artistically independent sculptor, this young artist from China endured hardships while maintaining his high spirit and creativity. He believes that sculptures, with their specific languages of expression, are the “externalized” thoughts, feelings and spirit of their creators, materializing through different textures, forms, dimensions and weights.
