Love, the beginning of it all


The birth of China Kaitian

In 2015, Luo Qisheng, who was engaged in game production, got acquainted with Yu Guanglai and Zhu Jiaqi, who love statues and model games like him because of business contacts.

With the common hobbies of similar ages, the three people hit it off and decided to create a studio that could turn ideals into reality.

At that time, the domestic sculpture industry was still very unpopular. It was relatively rare to be a company that spent money to buy copyrights and made original creations.

In this field, they are like pioneers who need to create a world from scratch. The situation and mood are very integrated, so I named the work "Kaitian".

One thought becomes a Buddha, one thought becomes a devil

Because his hometown is Jiuhua Mountain, one of the four famous Buddhist mountains, Luo Qisheng was fascinated by many Buddhist cultures when he was a child, and he developed a keen interest in Buddha statues.

"One Thought" is the first sculpture work he created, and it is also his attitude towards life.

In his memory, the Buddhist philosophy of "One thought becomes a Buddha, one thought becomes a devil".

Later, he created this kind of thinking into actual works to alert himself.

Whether it is changing from a university degree in international trade to game production, or later cooperating with others to start a business, it is a major choice that changes the trajectory of life.

Although decisions are often made in a single thought, you need to think more about whether you can bear the consequences.

From unpopular to broken circle

As Kaitian just founded that meeting, the domestic sculpture market was still limited to a niche circle. There are a total of six or seven people in the entire studio, doing things that are not sure about the future together.

Artist Series | Kaitian x Uncle Guang "The Youth of Jinlinzhi"

The three founders are always full of confidence and insist on the cause they love.

Finally, at the 2019 WF (the world's largest hand-made model exhibition) exhibition, they ushered in their own explosion, and the 1:1 statue created by their superb skills caused a sensation.

After the exhibition, almost every piece of work had to be lined up several times, and Kaitian gradually became known to more people and moved towards the mainstream market.

Statues for the Chinese

"The world is created by us, and ours, let the world know!"-China Kaitian

 

Statues for heroes

To make statues of Chinese heroes and let the world see the power that belongs to China is the ideal goal of Kaitian, and it is what we have been doing all the time.

With a history of 5,000 years of civilization, there are countless heroes in the long history. Kaitian chose to create images that everyone is familiar with.

The story of "Three Kingdoms" is well-known to everyone, and it is also their favorite cultural theme. After comprehensively considering the market audience and acceptance, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Zhao Yun, Ma Chao, Huang Zhong, and the Five Tigers will come to everyone.

Because these images are all traceable in history, Luo Qisheng, who uses Chinese classical sculpture creation techniques as his research direction, has also found a large number of ancient painting images for textual research while consulting historical materials.

On the basis of freehand and vivid, make heroes that make everyone feel cordial.

In addition to heroes that have existed in history, Yang Jian and Monkey King, who often appear in myths and TV dramas, are also doing it.

At the same time, the people around us who warm the anti-epidemic medical care and flood fighting fighters, as well as people from all walks of life who have made contributions to society, are all great "heroes", and they are also the objects that Kaitian hopes to create in the future.

They hope that through their own power, these great images can be preserved for a long time and displayed in front of the world one by one.

Do a good job of "Chinese texture"

Kaitian's creation of national style is not limited to the creation of existing images, but is also working hard to create its own original IP.

The "Xiao Ya Ji" series, which mainly features typical female images, is Luo Qisheng's original masterpiece, and it is also a true embodiment of the Chinese texture of all shapes and colors .

When Luo Qisheng visited the cave murals in Dunhuang, he was shocked by a beautiful musician with a pipa in his arms, which was unforgettable for a long time.

He used the statue to record the beauty in his memory and created "Huiyunque".

As a result, an image with an S-shaped curve, a slightly sad expression, with a mysterious veil, and a streamer dancing with the clothes came into being.

Since ancient times, Chinese people like to use bright colors. Luo Qisheng challenged the extremely difficult matching of red and green in the coloring of this work. In order to make the transition more natural, intersperse metal and blue appropriately.

At a glance, I can feel a simple and luxurious Chinese connotation.

This way of expression is also reflected in the new work of the same series, "He Tian Fei Ji".

It is inspired by dancers in the Tang Dynasty, a beautiful woman who is intoxicated with dance movements, and has a sense of lightness that flutters and flies.

Because of the close exchanges between China and the West at that time, Luo Qisheng's characterization of characters grasped Chinese elements while deliberately combining Eastern freehand lines with Western realistic techniques, balancing tradition and novel expression.

Therefore, the characters we see are Western Regions with more three-dimensional facial features wearing golden crane-like clothing.

The best work is the next

 

A good statue is appreciated by both the refined and the popular

When we asked Teacher Luo, what are the requirements for a good statue?

His answer is succinct and to the point.

A good work feels beautiful at first glance, and is deeply shocked without much language explanation.

We usually use cultural background and experience to measure everyone's understanding of art.

In fact, when the shape or color use of a work reaches a certain level, both professionals and ordinary people can naturally appreciate it.

Just like every new product in the studio, if most employees say yes, market acceptance will not be bad.

 

Therefore, for Kaitian to create works that are both refined and popular, it is something that Kaitian strives for and has been doing.

Kaitian created the "full-length portraits of twelve beast heads" based on the cast of Castiglione Castiglione in the National Library of China.

The most satisfactory work will always be the next

From historical heroes to original IP, to two-dimensional, film and television blockbusters, Luo Qisheng has created many classic works.

Ask him which one is most satisfied? A good answer with humility is the next one.

Creation is like learning. You will constantly absorb new skills and knowledge through your efforts to improve your level step by step.

Chinese Mythology Series丨 "Yang Jian" (under development)

Especially when working on a series of works, the first piece may not be surprising to some people, but when you become more and more perfect in the way of expression and make subsequent works, it will feel different.

The creation of a statue is not a moment, it is something to be done in a lifetime.

After a few years, decades, or even longer, the work can continue to be passed on, and there are people who appreciate it. That would be really good.
