Renowned Chinese artist Li Moran died Thursday in Beijing at the age of 85.

The artist's son Li Longyin told Xinhua via telephone that his father, the honorary chairman of Chinese Dramatists Association and honorary president of Liaoning People's Art Theater, died at the Beijing Hospital.

Born in December 1927 in Shangzhi county of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, Li Moran started his performing career in 1947.
