Intro
Fangwei Li has studied hard and mastered relevant professional knowledge. This paper attempts to solve the problem of traditional modeling and decoration in the creative concept of contemporary Chinese metal utensils through the artistic expression of "iconicity". The work pays more attention to humanistic expression, instead of blindly pursuing formal aesthetic feeling in modeling, which has initially formed his personal style. I hope he can continue to make more excellent works.
