Jiang Li

 

BIOGRAPHY:

Blending influences from the East and West, the old and new, Jiang Li is a Chinese artist who creates a rich visual tapestry that successfully combines the traditions of Asia with techniques of contemporary expression. Emerging from China’s Cultural Revolution and coming from Yunnan School, where he studied under Ting Shao Kuang, one of the school’s founders, Li is a part of the second wave of Yunnan artists. He manages to merge influences of his Chinese cultural heritage with Neolithic images, designs originating in Bronze Age, but also post-Han literature and the philosophy of Taoism. The imagery and colors are also inspired by the Buddhist cave paintings of the Silk Road as well as the setting of the Yunnan Province’s verdant jungle and its exotic tribal inhabitants. Trough his paintings, Li is showing a body of work whose creation springs from flesh interest and deeply rooted attachments. His original works have been reproduced and published in various media, including posters, serigraphs, ceramic, woodblock, bronze, and of course, books. Galleries throughout Asia, South America, Canada and the USA have shown his pieces.
