Li Hui was born in 1977 in Beijing, China. He graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2003. Affected by the intense urbanization of China, Li’s practice is a lens through which he observes the ever-changing environment and merges technology and social commentary. His light sculptures demonstrate both frenetic energy and a zen stillness that is present in Eastern philosophy and within the artist himself.
His work has been exhibited in solo museum exhibitions such as “V,” Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, CA (2016); “Halcyon Fracture,” SCAD, Savannah, GA (2014); “V,” Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China (2011), “Reality Impalpable,” Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, Taiwan (2011), “Transition,” Mannheimer Kunstverein, Mannheim, Germany (2010); and “Who’s Afraid of Red, Amber and Green?” Museum Kunstlicht in de Kunst, Eindhoven, The Netherlands (2010). Group shows with Li’s work include those at Long Museum, Chonqing, China; Long Museum West Bund, Shanghai, China; the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, Taiwan; and Arko Art Center, Seoul, Korea.
Li Hui currently lives and works in Beijing, China.
