Artist of the moment……Liao Yibai

Liao Yibai is a modern art star born in the year 1971 in Jiang An, Sichuan, China renown for his own brand of “antiques.” The works are made of stainless steel. For his artistic education Yibai attended the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts.  In making his “fakes” or in some cases his own brand of luxury items, he tries to conquer a side that we know exists, but is new to  me at least. Some of his own brands he has created deal with watches and handbags.

Other asian artists mix items like vases with coke imagery, but this artist chooses to concentrate on the fakes luxury brands people buy. In China so many people buy the fake brand they are assimilated into the mainstream culture.

Is a professor at Chongking University teaching design.

Splits his time amongs Beijing and  Sichuan.

From this excerpt of a documentary about Liao Yibai he tells us about his story in his own words:
