Transforming Oriental Beauty
She redefines Chinese paintings as well as contemporary womanhood...
Fempire 01 Sep 2018

Artist, Beijing

Li Xiaoling won the first China Commercial Model Competition when she was 18 years old. Born into a family of scholars, Li Xiaoling already started learning traditional Chinese painting when she was a kid. After graduated from Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University, she traveled to France to further pursue her dream in art. She has had various solo exhibitions in Rome, Petit Palais in Paris and Enjoy Art Museum in Beijing, and some joint exhibitions in New York, Tokyo and Singapore. In 2015, she was even given an award by Jean-Pierre Raffarin, the former French prime minister, because of her great contribution to the cultural exchange between France and China. An artist, socialite and model – Li Xiaoling is redefining not only Chinese paintings, but also contemporary womanhood.
