about this work
These paintings form part of a semi-biographical series depicting a unique and provocative portrait of the enduring legacy of China's one-child rule. Introduced in 1979, just five years after Li Tianbing was born, this decree continues to pervade contemporary Chinese life and is questioned on a global scale. Li Tianbing's paintings, a beautiful fusion of portraiture and abstraction, are a thought-provoking articulation of the human consequence of such legislation.
