Rosanna Li Wei-Han 李慧嫻

Rosanna Li is a leading ceramic artist from Hong Kong, and retired Assistant Professor at the School of Design of Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Born in Hong Kong, Rosanna first studied Ceramics at the Hong Kong Polytechnic, and pursued tertiary education at University of Liverpool. Her works have been exhibited extensively in Asia, Australia, Canada, the U.S.A and Europe. Rosanna’s works are collected by the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Shiwan Ceramic Museum in Guangdong, and many more museum and institutions in Asia. Rosanna has garnered numerous awards, including the Hong Kong Urban Council Fine Art Award (Ceramics) in 1985, the Artist of the Year Award (Sculpture), the Silver Award in Ceramics of the Guangdong Museum of Art in 2000; and in 2005, she was awarded the Secretary for Home Affairs Commendation Medal, for her contributions to the promotion of the arts and culture in Hong Kong.

Earthy and comical, Rosanna’s plump, amiable, figures are versatile caricatures, portraying the various, vibrant facets of Hong Kong popular culture. The Mahjong figures are caught in earnest play, looking mirthful and at ease, while her yoga sculptures are seated in repose, emitting through their robust, ample frames, a contemplative aura that speaks of the artist’s wit and craftsmanship, relayed through her chubby, amiable creations.
