Chen Hangfeng

Yesterday I went on a mini trip to St Andrews with Introduction to Creative Industries students and Furniture students to see an exhibition by Chinese artist Chen Hangfeng an artist who's work in paper cuts is based on long traditions but which at the hands of Chen Hangfeng has absorbed the modern iconography of logos and branding. Chen Hangfeng's work traverses the usual boundaries of art craft and design as he works with film, installation rugs and paper cuts.
In this exhibition I particularly liked the mirrored book forms which expanded his designs, see bottom two images.
