Wang Lifeng


Wang Lifeng

Wang Lifeng (b.1962, Inner Mongolia, China) currently lives and works in Beijing. He graduated from Stage Design, Central Academy of Theatre in 1986. Wang’s artistic practice reflected deeply on how the truths of Chinese culture and history can or should be reflected in contemporary society, and poetically combines collages of woodblocks, ink and mixed media and frames them in the form of an ancient Chinese book. His uniqueness lies in his ability to reimagine images from China’s past while simultaneously creating a new visual language. 

Wang has held various solo exhibitions in China, Australia and Germany. His works are in private collections in Australia, Austria, China, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Singapore and France.
