About sculptor Xu Hongfei:
Xu Hongfei, born in 1963 in Yangjiang City, Guangdong Province, graduated from the Department of Sculpture, Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 1990. He is currently the president of the Guangzhou Sculpture Academy and a national first-class artist.
In recent years , He has developed his own characteristics in the Chinese sculpture circle through the series of " chubby women ". His talent lies in how he applies multiple-perspectives and different materials to create “clubby women” with humorous and dynamic appearances. His works are bold and exaggerated yet rational. They perform a sculptural comedy after the fashion of ‘Laurel and Hardy’, subverting the sculptural norms when it comes to depicting body types.
