She has been called a one-woman cultural exchange program.
Li Duanmu was born in Inner Mongolia and graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in China and became a noted mural artist. She is a passionate collector, and curator for fine arts and resides in New York, Beijing, and Paris, managing her art endeavors and affording her a unique view for the visual cultures of both east and west.
Li Duanmu has built a bridge for fine art between America and China. Deeply immersed in both the ancient aesthetic culture of China and its contemporary, cutting-edge trends, she is a personal curator of Chinese art for American collectors who recognize the burgeoning market for Chinese art and wish to expand their collections eastward. At the same time, she is equally versed in the movements and value of contemporary western artists, and opens the doors of western art to an increasingly hungry audience of Chinese collectors.
Li Duanmu’s bridge from East to West includes personal consultations and the curating of private collections. And across the globe, she has created gallery shows, promotional communications and public exhibitions that propel artists and generate buzz.
