Blog Post Image: Stretch your Imagination with Li Hongbo’s Paper Sculpture

Chinese artist Li Hongbo stretches a paper sculpture work at his studio on the outskirts of Beijing, January 20, 2014. Born into a simple farming family, Li said he had always loved paper, invented in ancient China. Beyond his sculptures, he has spent six years producing a collection of books recording more than 1,000 years of Buddhist art on paper. Neither plaster nor clay, the statues are concertinas of thousands upon thousands of fine pieces of paper.”At the beginning, I discovered the flexible nature of paper through Chinese paper toys and paper lanterns,” Li, 38, told Reuters.
