Contemporary Chinese Sculpture
Contemporary Chinese sculptor Zhang Yaxi (pronounced "Djang" and 'Yashi' in English) lives and works as a professional sculptor in Chongqing (formerly within Sichuan province), China.
Her training and education is that of a typical young Chinese sculptor today (she has created monumental sculptures up to 7 metres in height), and her sculpture has been exhibited in several international sculpture symposia and national sculpture exhibitions as well as being commissioned for public and corporate spaces. Click here to view thumbnail pictures of her personal work in the sculpture portfolio, which lead to larger views of each work.
Shown below, Yaxi is working on one of her monumental works entitled The Gate of Life, a monumental urban sculpture in bronze created during the China Changchun International Sculpture Symposium 2001. In a more ephemeral vein, browse to see Pregnant, a monumental snow sculpture created on a frozen lake in Harbin, China. You can also see "Honorable Hero - General Ba" a monumental work created during the 4th International Sculpture Symposium of Vietnam in December of 2003.
In the last two years, Yaxi has been working on a series of provocative and moody nudes which can be wall-mounted - the perfect answer for anyone who feels they don't have enough table-top or floor space!!! See Nude I, Nude II and Nude III here.
Another recent series has centered on carving small abstract marble sculptures... See the top of the Portfolio page!
A few of her most "high-profile" projects include her award-winning "Mother and Child" - a monumental sculpture 16m wide x 7m high x 6m deep for the city of Golmud in Qinghai Province, and the Tennis Terracotta Warrior series for the ATP / Tennis Master Cup Shanghai 2007 which she worked on with fellow sculptors Laury Dizengremel and Shen Xiaonan.
