DaWo Law Firm is very proud of our long-term partnership with Kunming-based artist Li Kunwu, whose works and publications are renowned throughout China and Europe.
Born during the Mao years, Li Kunwu is a self-taught comic book writer, painter and illustrator, and is the author of about 30 books in his native province of Yunnan. He also authored several documentary comics in France, including Une Vie Chinoise, which collected prizes and accolades at some of Europe’s leading festivals.
Because one of our goals is to foster cultural exchanges between Europe and China, we were extremely honored when Master Li agreed to illustrate our website and decorate our office with a selection of his more recent works, which we believe represent some of the core values on which China is built.
