Bifei Cao born in Hunan, China studied in China and the United States and is currently lecturer and PhD candidate at the Australian National University, Canberra. The omnipotent artist and teacher has a sculptural and functional approach to jewellery making, and does not hesitate to overthrow the common limits of wearability. He is appropriating various traditional Chinese techniques and developing them in his own way in order to create his unique pieces. Structures and construction play an important role and give his works a distinct aesthetics. Together with figurative elements they evoke communication beyond cultural limitations.
