Lao Tongli (born in 1982 in Guangdong Province) graduated from the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts with a Bachelor’s degree in Chinese Painting in 2006, worked and interned in Paris, France and Heidelberg, Germany from 2006 to 2008. He has been living and working in Guangzhou since 2009. The artist is deeply inspired by the rich phenomena of life interactions such as growth, consciousness, sensation, reproduction, life and death, and evolution through a gradual awareness of the internal functions of the human body and the ecosystem of nature. The figurative bloodline and the shape of the tree share similarities, weaving and depicting the cyclical patterns of life, blending and organizing them symbolically to create a field of life that overlaps, entwines, touches, links and expands.
