Wood Burning Art
Meet The Artist
Wu Li Hong has developed a technique for creating very detailed art by inscribing wood with a burning tool that is unique in this province. His art has been recognized Nationally in China and received many awards for his artistic style. A resident of Lijiang, Yunnan he has created portraits of traditional native peoples in details that are astounding. The three samples of his style below show both the subtle details that he can achieve. The two women below contrast the older traditional Chinese woman who is fully covered and the more contemporary woman wearing a very different, more revealing style of dress.
CCTV (China TV) has featured his work in short documentary. His work is also featured in many magazines in China. His larger pieces take about one month to create and are generally sold quickly. He has agreed to reproduce these pieces on commission or to create new works to reflect your desires.
