He immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 2004, then relocated to Vancouver BC, where he founded and became the director of the Vancouver Sculpture Studio in 2012. With more than 35yrs as a sculptor who has participated in exhibitions internationally, he was invited as an Artist Mentor for the MFA Program at Lesley University, Cambridge MA. Currently, he is working on a 10-year project of 40 life-sized figures titled “Moment” as part of an international sculpture program and constructing a sculpture garden in Washington State, USA.
He was elected into the Sculptors Society of Canada in 2006; and into the National Sculpture Society (USA) in 2018. Xin Meng resides in Vancouver BC.
I stand alone: artists are dying out, replaced by the consumerist “creative entrepreneur” of the modern world. But I am not in despair, I have not lost my direction nor my ideals.
I am currently working on my sculpture series “The Moment”, and I hope to build a sculpture garden, creating a world of art.
