Artist Qu Guangci pursues greatness with ‘Little Fatty’ and ‘A Great Man’

There’s an old Chinese saying which goes ‘man struggles upwards; water flows downwards’. So while water has shaped the landscape by forming gullies and gorges, mankind has raised his eyes upwards to scale mountains both literal and metaphorical. Throughout the whole of human evolution, man’s pursuit of greatness has defined the planet. Celebrating this achievement is the quirky sculpture ‘A Great Man’, created by Qu Guangci. Known for his ‘Little Fatty’ series, Qu was born in Shanghai in 1969 and trained at the China Central Academy. His ‘Great Man’ sculpture is a limited edition run of just 999 pieces, complete with the artist’s signature. Available from Lane Crawford Home Décor.
