Chen Li Biography

Chen Li was born in Ningbo, Zhejiang in 1996. She focuses on female narratives in a contemporary context, oriental mystical aesthetics and the 'irrational' dimension of society's daily life in the process of modernisation. She tries to understand the conflict and coexistence between modernity and mysticism, elite culture and superstition, and the androgynous delicate state and labyrinthine chaotic aesthetics caused by this tug-of-war between rationality and intuition.

Li graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2018 with a bachelor's degree and received a master's degree in fine art from Central Saint Martins College of Art in 2020. She currently works and lives in Shanghai. Chen Li's recent creations mainly use mineral pigment painting, modern lacquer art and ceramic art as mediums to develop and explore the contradictory flowing aesthetics.
