Share on Pinterest

Contemporary by Angela Li recently presented Li Hongbo’s solo exhibition – Shadow of Knives, a brand new series of metal sculpture and installation works by the Beijing-based artist.

The initial concept of this metal series came to Li back in 2007, the same time as he developed his extremely successful , during his studies at Beijing’s Central Academy of Fine Arts. ”Shadow of Knives” is a warning he gives society – that human beings will eventually destroy themselves because of their gluttony and their abuse of animals.

After graduating from the Central Academy of Fine Arts with an MFA in Experimental Art, Li quickly became one of the more popular young contemporary Chinese artists. His works have been exhibited extensively around the world, and are included in public collections such as in the Central Academy of Fine Arts Museum, Found Museum, 53 Art Museum in Beijing and the White Rabbit Collection in Sydney.
