Graduated with a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from Tsinghua University in 2013
In his ongoing series of works, Chinese sculptor Li Shengzeng creates surreal animals that don’t act like animals at all. “Leaving individuals behind is painful”, admits the sculptor, but it allows us to reduce confusion and see the value and force of life. In the space of impermanent compounds, what we pursue may not exist really and we can only feel the value and force of life when the doom is set. It allows us the clarity to reduce confusion; to find true self is difficult, but it gives us the happiness of one in a million.
Shengzeng’s sculptures are the result of Eastern classical painting and imagery that’s been combined with past experiences. The artist describes his creative process as digging deep into his heart and excavating “works that originally exist from various experiences.”
