Inspired by his varied life experiences, he began instinctively to create more and more new products depicting his picturesque hometown.
Mr. Li’ s “Junsheng Sandstone Painting is a style of creative art made from natural and perm-colored materials, namely, sand, fragmented stone and portions of plants. This special kind of painting integrates several other art forms—Chinese painting, oil painting, print painting, carving, and miniature landscape. In so doing, it presents us with an intriguing three-dimensional effect, coupled with a strong sense of reality.
His productions are highlighted by gorgeous natural scenery, ancient and plain ethnic dwellings, wild and attractive Tujia girls, as well as strong and unrestrained Tujia men. Some of these works are calm, even passive; others are filled with dynamism.
