Song Hongquan

Song Hongquan

Born: 1978

Hometown: Hebei, China

Based in: Beijing

 

Song Hongquan is one of the rare artists in China to have matured outside the academic system in which even the most rebellious have received their training. It would be wrong to say that he is self-taught, since he grew up watching his father carve whatever he was commissioned to do. However, it would be more accurate to say that he learned how to carve more than what might be expressed through this form of manual labor.

There is every chance that he might have remained a professional stonecarver producing replicas of Western masterpieces, garden statuary in an academic style and so on but what prevented him from this activity was the desire to use his technical skills for a higher purpose than merely to reproduce the external characteristics of what he saw.
