Liu Xue

Liu Xue is a Chinese sculptor who combines humans and animals to create grotesque figures.
The animal and human tend to fit with each other thematically, like a large overweight man being paired with the body of a bull dog/pig.

His biography and website are completely in Chinese, so i'm unable to find more information on his age/schooling.

From what I can find, the pieces were created around 2013, and according to a few websites featuring his work, they don't have any "deeper" meaning other than to awe and entertain.

I enjoy his work because it combines grotesque and creepy imagery with subtle humor. His renderings are incredibly detailed and realistic. 

These images are also lacking in any information about the materials or title/date.
