Born in 1974 in Jingdezhen, a city that has been considered for centuries as the world capital of porcelain, LI LIHONG started his training of the arts of ceramics at a very young age under the supervision of the great master Qin Xiling. Even if his work finds inspiration in the traditional royal porcelains, that have made the reputation of his village, Li Lihong conceives his works with a completely contemporary approach. He reinvents Chinese porcelain in a radical manner; after having taken in all the different international influences (publicity, consumer society...) that the Chinese assimilated after the implantation on their terri- tory of worldwide firms such as Coca-Cola or Mac Donald’s in the 1980’s.
With these hybrid works of art Li Lihong transcribes all the ancestral quality of traditional Chinese porcelain now affixed to new shapes born from the meeting of east and west, creating genuine modern icons, that are surprising, fragile and poetic.
