Yuan Jai is a Chinese visual artist, born in Chongqing, Sichuan. Yuan Jai studied Chinese painting at the National Taiwan Normal University. She subsequently went to Belgium for further education. Yuan received her MA degree from the Catholic University of Leuven in 1966, and from 1965 to 1968 she was at the Royal Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Artifacts for doctoral studies. While abroad, Yuan was able to study not only examples of Art Deco and Art Nouveau but also of Cubism and Surrealism, which has been fundamental to her later stylistic development.

Yuan Jai has had several gallery and museum exhibitions, including at the Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts. Her work have been sold at auction, including Lui Hai Playing with a Toad sold at Sotheby's Hong Kong 20th Century Chinese Art in 2012 for $133,923. There have been several articles about Yuan Jai, including Art Review; A Great Chinese Leap Into a New Sort of Cultural Revolution written by Holland Cotter for New York Times in 1998.
