Mini Michelin China – White
5 in stock
“Even the workers who do the smallest tasks accomplish an important work every day.”
François Michelin, Michelin Special Edition, Ed. La Montagne, 2007
At the crossroads of the cultures and the worlds, Li Lihong never ceases to amaze us with his hybrid figures resulting from the meeting of art and contemporary iconography.
His latest work, Michelin China, borrows its form as much from religion as from advertising. In a meditative pause, a Michelin man, famous icon of the French brand which evokes gastronomy and luxury around the world, transforms into Buddha. The serene face brings a deep sense of calm and relaxation that contrasts with the culture shock. As for the colors and patterns that adorn this work, it refers to temple idols, sometimes ancestral Chinese porcelain, all reminds us that Li Lihong knows how to create the bridges between the traditional and the contemporary. Thanks to this sculpture included in the ART FOR ALL collection, the artist makes us smile as much as he makes us dream, projecting us into the heart of his universe. A real concentre of bliss.
