The Superb Malleable Paper Sculptures by Li Hongbo
Beijing-based artist Li Hongbo uses thousands of sheets of paper to create each one of these mind-boggling flexible sculptures that expand, contract, bend and twist in different directions.
Li Hongbo is best known for his interpretations of paper. His reinvention of the material’s form challenges viewers’ expectations of the medium as an artistic vehicle.
Utilizing an age-old honeycomb technique seen in paper gourd making in China, Li creates kinetic paper works which elegantly expand, contract, and retract. These sculptures hint at influences of folk traditions in China, but in contemporary light play upon perceptions and the visual language of a mercurial medium that has stood the test of time.
