Chinese artist Xu Hong Fei searches for beauty from daily life. In his “Chubby Women” series, he demonstrates liberty and enchantment, portraying his subjects in a beautiful, natural way. Xu’s philosophy is that each person has the right to enjoy their own body and be confident and content in their unique physical appearance. “Weight should never be the measurement of beauty.”
With his “Chubby Women” series, Xu portrays his subjects as satisfied, content and having fun in their daily lives. He enjoys demonstrating the beauty and suppleness of the plump figure and admires the energy of weight. His meticulous use of white marbles, precious wood and bronze to showcase these figures leaves the viewer with new interpretations of beauty in a refreshing, revitalizing way.
