Li Shigong

Li Shigong, graduated from Beijing Film Academy, lives and works in Beining

Li was born in 1967, during the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Li spent his childhood at a military family and grew up exposed to Communist ideas. In his Rhapsody in Red Series, he uses inspiration and iconic homage from that period, makes fun of establishments, and teases politics to create imagery for his dreams and ideology of the present state of China. Light-hearted and dreamy, his work expresses a child’s imagination with a subtle adult subject hidden beneath his visual wonderland.
