In Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, an annual artistic tradition has unfolded at the China Academy of Art’s Nanshan Campus with the opening of the Leaf Art Festival. Collecting piles of fallen leaves, students have fashioned a diverse array of sculptural artworks, turning nature’s annual shedding into expressions of art.

Since 2016, the China Academy of Art has been growing the leaf installation exhibition into a lively arts festival. Leaf sculptures have multiplied, with this year’s creations adorning various locations in the city.
