Li Changlong


Li Changlong

Born 1975 in Guizhou, Chine.

Living in Beijing, Chine.


Graduated from the Southwest University of Chengdu in 1999, Li Changlong has been a professor at the Academy of Art of Chengdu since 2002.

In 2009, Li started the staging project of his atelier.He endeavoured to create a relationship between the reality and the fiction in his works. Always based on the news, his creations denounced the absurdity in the society by the theatrical tension in compositions.

Li Changlong has begun to exhibit his works since 1999 in Sichuan, a religion particularly notable for the development of Chinese contemporary art. His talents in “scenographer” gave him the chances to be invited in the exhibitions at the prestigious institutions in Beijing, Shanghai, Hongkong and London.


“I try to use the intensive colors, the geometrically rigid segmentations and the pseudo-spaces in order to contrast with the virtuality and the present absurdity in our society.”

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."
