“Paper—you can never predict what it will become in the end.”

Born Siping City, Jilin, 1974, lives and works in Beijing.

Li Hongbo became fascinated by traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as paper gourds made from glued layers of thin paper which can be stored flat but then opened to reveal a flower or other shape.

“纸 — 你永远无法预测它的未来”

1974年出生于吉林省长春市,现在北京居住、生活。

图书编辑、设计师。

对中国传统玩具和节日装饰纸葫芦的痴迷,让李洪波深深地爱上了对纸的研究。简单的单薄白纸,经过他的创作,可以有无穷无尽的变化。
