Li Hongbo

This week on EXPOSURE, we would like to introduce a contemporary paper master, Li Hongbo! Inspired by Chinese paper lanterns, he uses stacks of paper to recreate Renaissance sculptures. Li’s fascination with paper began with his previous position as a book editor. All of his pieces seem stationary and solid, but can be stretched and transformed. The sculptures are composed of over 20,000 sheets of paper glued together.

This video explains his sculpting process:
