Li Hongbo, Chinese Paper Sculptor

.
Li Hongbo, born in China’s Jilin province in 1974, earned his Master of Fine Arts(MFA) degree in Folk Art in 2001, MFA degree in Experimental Art in 2010, both from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. He is best known for his lifelike paper sculptures, made entirely out of paper and glue. He now lives and works in Beijing, China.
Each bust comprises roughly 7,000 to 8,000 sheets of white paper stacked on top of each other. They are glued manually in a honeycomb structure, allowing the resulting sculptures complete flexibility and sturdiness (Wikipedia)
