Sculptor Wu Yongping lives and works in Shanghai, China, though his
work and reputation is international. Currently, Wu Yongping is engaged
in creating new sculptural works, as well as teaching arts education. This
Associate Professor of the Sculpture Department at the Central Academy
of Fine Art says that new art work involves researching and exploring new
material. But he also continues to use familiar materials such as applied
lacquer and glass casting.
”There is no end to creative direction;
I will insist on creating new works every year,
no matter which form and material it is made
from, and more importantly maintain the
highest state of creation.
Art has no borders, regardless of race, religion,
or color, but only aesthetics; its fundamental
purpose is creation.
Art brings me unlimited creativity, and I believe,
unlimited creativity brings people happiness.”
