Zilong Guo 郭子龙

Guo Zilong 郭子龙 graduated from Tsinghua University in 2002 with a BFA degree in metal art design. Then he graduated from Beijing University of Technology with a MFA degree in digital art in 2013. Currently teaching at the Department of Arts and Crafts, School of Art and Design, Beijing University of Technology. He mainly teaches metal furnishings design, decorative sculpture, comprehensive material design, materials and technology, and metal decoration design. He has been engaged in artistic creations such as sculpture, painting and metal materials for years. His works have been collected by Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong collectors, the EU ambassador to China, and the Swiss ambassador to China.

Guo Zilong is an artist who is difficult to classify. His creative methods and works are not typical sculptures or installations, especially his recent series of graphic works, which have further blurred the boundaries of artistic forms. Guo Zilong embodies his thoughts on the concepts of “authenticity” and “nature” in a lot of complicated manual labor. His dedication to independent production and nearly strict requirements on the level of craftsmanship are also manifestations of his artistic concept.
