Li Lihong was born in 1974 in Jingdezhen, Jiangxi Province. He is now a teacher at the School of Fine Arts of the Shanghai Institute of Visual Art.
In the language of Pop Art, the artist paints traditional auspicious designs on a world famous trademark, which is made of china, one of the most characteristic Chinese materials.
