Yaxi - Contemporary Chinese Sculptor
"Tennis Terracotta Warriors"
before leaving the Tank Loft Contemporary Arts Center in Chongqing
along with fellow Chinese sculptor Shen Xiaonan and French
sculptor Laury Dizengremel created the 8 Tennis Terracotta Warriors
(Wangqiu Binmayong) for the ATP / Tennis Master Cup Shanghai 2007.
These are monumental sculptures, approx. 2m20 in height.
This shot was created by our friend David McBride who is a keen photographer and teaches animation at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. We didn't have the time to line the Warriors up in any particular order, but they looked great against one of the walls of the Tank Loft Contemporary Arts Center in Chongqing where our studio is located. David took this in several timed images and did his magic... so the wall look curved rather than straight!
From left to right, tennis warriors: Fernando Gonzalez, Richard Gasquet, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Roddick, Nikolay Davydenko and David Ferrer.
