Biographie

Né en 1975 à Guizhou (Sud-est de la Chine), Li Changlong est diplômé de Southwest University en 1999. Professeur à l’Académie des Beaux Arts de Chengdu depuis 2002, il vit et travaille actuellement à Pékin.

En 2009, il début un projet de « mise en scène » de son atelier. Doté d’une grande maîtrise des techniques de figuration et de composition, Li s’attache à créer dans ses œuvres du lien entre réalité et fiction. Souvent basées sur des faits divers, ses créations dénoncent sur la toile toute l’absurdité de la société révélée par la tension théâtrale de ses compositions.

Li Changlong a commencé à exposer ses œuvres dès 1999 au Sichuan, une région notable pour le développement de l’art contemporain chinois. Ses talents de « scénographe » lui permettent par la suite d’être invité à exposer dans de prestigieuses institutions à Beijing, Shanghai ou Hong Kong, ainsi qu’à la Memories and Imagination Abermale Gallery à Londres.


COMMENTAIRE 

"J'essaie d'utiliser des couleurs intenses, des segmentations géométriques rigides et pseudo-spatiales pour contraster avec la virtualité et l'absurdité présentes dans la société"

Li Changlong

"Li Changlong tends to create his own psychological scenery from urban or natural landscapes. The odd visual space formed by his magical colours on canvas is as inaccessible as backdrops in photo studios that the figures photographed can never quite blend in.

As an artist with great technical skills, Li freely integrates all elements on canvas into different pieces of characteristic and expressive works. Although some people believe that skill is almost a burden to creativity, he expertly integrates skills in his expressions."
