In Yuanxing Liang’s folkloric sculptures, the hair of his figures become their own whimsical landscapes. Liang, formerly a game character designer, is now a full time artist, often working within fantastical figurative sculpture. Many have noted the challenge of displaying his work, as each pieces comes fully realized and detailed, 360 degrees of intricate notes from the artist.
A graduate of Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts, Liang’s recent work is derived from ancient narratives. Pieces such as “Chunmang. Peach Blossom Island” are based on narratives like”Peach Blossom Dragon Spring,” a fable written in 421 CE, detailing the discovery of a utopian world.
