    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Born in 1974 in Jingdezhen, China.

    Living in Shanghai, China.Born in 1974 in Jingdezhen, Jiangxi Province, China, Li Lihong graduated in 1996 from the Academy of Arts and Design, Tsinghua University of Beijing, and then in 2005 earned a MFA in the Jingdezhen Ceramics Institute. He is now himself professor of Chinese porcelain work at Fudan University in Shanghai, living and creating in this city.

    A skillful Chinese ceramic artist, he comes indeed from a village well-known for the production of the Royal china porcelain for hundreds of years, where he learned the art of ceramics alongside the Grand Master Qin Xiling. Li Lihong gives a contemporary touch to traditionally painted china, mimicking the shapes of recognizable brands’ logos. His statement is univocal and strong : Western consumerism, in a globalised form, has become integrated into Chinese culture which is in struggle to preserve its integrity and savoir-faire.

    However, the tedious and difficult process of production and the fine detailing on the painted glazes counter this blatancy. Li Lihong explores this contrast, a very contemporary Chinese attitude toward the traditional arts. Moreover, the frailty of his artworks and the preciousness of their material add another contrast to the cheapness and ephemerality of mass production and consumption.

    Li Lihong has been showing his work regularly in China and other Asian countries for many years, in ceramics exhibitions and at biennials, as well as in many personal or collective exhibitions around the world.

Li Lihong

China Born in: 1974 Emergent Artist

Li Lihong comes from the Jiangxi province, more precisely from the famous village Dezhen Jin where the royal porcelain of China has been produced for centuries.

He has learned the art of ceramics with master Qin Xiling. Unlike the work of his master, which is more traditional, Li lihong is inspired by the great Chinese ceramics, but with a contemporary touch.

Inspired by this millenary tradition, surrounded by the greatest ceramic artists in China, Li Lihong has always dreamed of becoming a ceramic artist, as his illustrious ancestors and his teacher, master Qin Xiling, while adding a modern touch to his works.

Absorbing all the influences of contemporary society, from advertising to the consumer culture (with the arrival in China of large firms such as Coca-Cola or McDonald's in the '80s ), he captures in his ceramic works the ancestral quality of porcelain and the confrontation between tradition and modernity and between the East and the West. His sculptures, most often golden or silver (and more rarely, white or colored) incorporate the blue and white aesthetic of traditional porcelain decoration. 

Using experimental techniques, Li Lihong achieves this surprising mix of minimalist shapes, geometrical and curved lines, and goes beyond the limits of traditional ceramics. Through elements of daily life, he expressed as well, through his visual language, the changes in the Chinese society and its capacity to assimilate various cultures to which it is faced.
