In the artist’s ‘Tools of Study’ work, the busts of these figures resemble that of carved porcelain but it’s in fact, thousands of layered paper. This is unnoticeable, but the application becomes apparent in the short video where the figures are stretched and contorted to reveal its true make-up. ‘Tools of Study’ is available on display at the New York’s Klein Sun Gallery. It is also the first ever solo show by the Hongbo in the US.
Even Kid Guy described the work of the artist as something that ‘stretches your imagination with a twisted take on traditional sculpting.’ Check out the vid below.
