Greek mythology maintained that a titan named Atlas held up the earth, but Chinese sculptor Wang Ruilin has a different notion about all that. His powerful and tale-like “Dreams” sequence characteristics beasts of seemingly monolithic proportions that have the entire world we stay in on their backs.
Ruilin’s sculptures (some of which are virtually life-sized) are heavily influenced by traditional Chinese art. In fact, his formative minute as an artist happened when he was 4 or 5 many years old and observed an ink portray of a horse by Chinese artist Xu Belhong. “I was anxious on it for many times and even be obsessed with Chinese ink and wash paintings, which consist of quick sketches but are total of vigor,” he writes on his web site. “Maybe my consideration on ‘horses’ experienced improved little by small from that time.”
