Not our usual bag, but this shit is insane. Chinese artist, Li Hongbo, creates classical busts and other objects out of paper, carefully glued together then sculpted to achieve the effect of realistic statues, statues that can flex and warp when moved. Literally off it’s head.

He has exhibited at Sydney’s Biennale and Klein Sun and Dominik Mersch galleries in New York, as well as numerous other spaces worldwide.

DW: Who is Mike Watt? How do you describe your style?

MW: I’m an artist and illustrator from Sydney. I’ve been drawing and painting walls for quite a while but I was a bit of a hermit until a year or 2 ago. I’d say my style is kind of gritty and ugly, normally showing characters with lots of characters that have lived an interesting life.
