Renowned Chinese sculptor Chen Dapeng will have his UK debut at Olympia Winter Art & Antiques Fair, London

Already enjoying much popularity in his native China, Chen Dapeng has been dubbed 'the new Rodin' by Le Monde newspaper. Dapeng will exhibit at Olympia Winter Art & Antiques Fair from November 2-8 2015, showing more than 40 of his sculptures in various media. Working in a range of materials such as bronze and wood, the artist was the only Chinese sculptor to participate in the Shanghai EXPO in 2010 and has also had his works shown at the world famous Carousel de Louvre in Paris.

Initially a self-taught sculptor, Chen went to study under the renowned Chinese artist Pan He at Guangzhou Academy in 1989. Since 2001, he has created hundreds of works, many of which are important public pieces such as the official sculpture for former President Deng Xiaoping. Speaking on behalf of Mr Chen Dapeng, Paul Harris of Paul Harris Asia Arts said, “We chose Olympia for this Chinese sculptor’s first UK exhibition after much consideration. In our view, it is the best venue affording us the very considerable space needed to show all his most important works.”
