About

"Snowflake 3" Limited edition sculpture by Huang Yulong 2017 Glass 47 1/5 × 47 1/5 × 1 1/5 in 120 × 120 × 3 cm Edition of 8 SNOWFLAKE SERIES Overwhelmed by the outbursts of terror and violence that have been recently happening across the world, Huang Yulong has created his new “Snowflakes” series made of crystal, bronze or wooden gun-shaped fragments that when assembled together resemble a shape of a snowflake. The artist sympathizes to the victims and witnesses of terror whose world has crumbled into pieces in the midst of peaceful and serene everyday life routine. The same way a blizzard lashes down unexpectedly in the middle of a summer day, people’s lives are being disturbed by uninvited intrusions and attacks of violence and terror. With the help of a universal art language, by shaping guns into snowflakes, the artist hopes to transmit a simple message across the borders and nations that there is simply no place for violence in this world and it has to melt away and disappear eventually just like the snow that always melts in the end of winter. ABOUT THE ARTIST Huang Yulong was born in 1983 in Anhui Province, China. In 2007 he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute in Jiangxi Province. As one of the new generation of Chinese artists and part of the ‘post-80s generation’ and ‘only child’ generation, Huang is strongly influenced by the phenomenon of foreign culture in China, which he combines with his fascination with pottery and the material world. Huang is best known for his sculptures of Buddhas in hoodies, displaying an exchange of Eastern tradition and Western contemporary style. He was selected by “Complex” as “25 Contemporary Chinese Artists You Need to Know” in 2013. His sculptures have been exhibited at Niubi Newbie Kids II, at Schoeni Gallery, Hong Kong; “Zeitgeist” Huang Yulong’s Solo Exhibition at Himalayas Art Museum, Shanghai, China; Chinese Artist / Marseille Artist at Marseilles, France; The 4th International Contemporary Art Exhibition at Gwangju Biennale Korea, Art Beijing Art Fair at Beijing, China and etc. He also held his first solo exhibition “NULL” in Hong Kong in 2015.
