Chinese-Australian artist Ah Xian is one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, now living and art making in the Sydney’s northern suburbs. He was involved in violent protests with students and activists in Tiananmen’s Square in June 1989. He then sought political asylum in Australia. Once settled in Australia, Ah Xian changed his practice from painting to sculpture. He began casting porcelain busts and painting them with traditional Chinese designs in 1997. Xian’s practice maintains an ongoing and unrestricted exploration of the human form as a cultural, historical and reflective entity.
