French artist finds valuable lacquer, inspiration deep in mountains for his creations

The Qinling-Daba mountain areas of Southwest China nurture abundant lacquer trees.

Located deep in the Daba Mountains, Chengkou county in Chongqing produces prized Damu lacquer that possesses high-gloss and strong, adhesive qualities.

Fascinated by lacquer art, French artist Vincent Cazeneuve arrived in China 15 years ago with the aim of finding suitable species of lacquer trees for his artwork. He visited many places in China and finally settled down in Chengkou.
