Li Hongbo: Ocean of Flowers

Work / Art

Strikingly vibrant paper sculptures from the highly dexterous Li Hongbo

Book designer Li Hongbo spends his spare time nurturing a fanatical interest in paper and its properties. Inspired by the honeycomb constructions of traditional festive decorations in China, Li creates beautiful large-scale installations of vibrant colours fashioned from paper patterns of a more sinister nature than the final visuals would suggest. He also produces impressively detailed anatomical sculptures that can be distorted and stretched to fill gallery spaces with their strange, undulating limbs and appendages. Utterly bewildering and incredibly skilful stuff.
