Shao Fan

Shao Fan was born in 1964 into a family of artists, and studied woodcarving and porcelain at the Art & Craft Research Institute, Beijing. He is most famous for a series of “re-appropriated pieces of classical Ming-style furniture that merge with a contemporary aesthetic…some of which integrate heavy, black, angular shapes that, in a way, mimic Chinese ideograms”.
