Han Meilin, the artist and designer who created the fuwa mascots of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, is known for being highly productive and energetic, even at age 83.

Recently Han opened a new art gallery named after himself, in addition to the three venues in Beijing, Hangzhou of Zhejiang province, and Yinchuan of Ningxia Hui autonomous region.

The new space opened in late December is located in Yixing, a county-level city in Jiangsu province famous for a long-standing industry of producing clay ware teapots that have been well-received among tea drinkers and teapot collectors at home and abroad.
