Chinese sculptor Xu Hongfei and his international travelling exhibition

Recognised as one of China’s leading artists and current president of the Guangzhou Sculpture Academy, Xu Hongfei’s work offers a lively exploration of daily life in China. His interest is in the simple, ordinary, and everyday pleasures in which his subjects find happiness. In his ‘Chubby Women’ series, Xu Hongfei presents women engaging in daily activities and captures a snapshot of Chinese life through their lens. These sculptures will be exhibited in association with the government of Guangzhou at More London in proximity to Tower Bridge, bringing a slice of China to an iconic part of the capital.
