YUYELAI

Born in 1999. As of 2021, she is currently studying at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.

At 21 years, she is one of a new generation of artists who has distinguished herself in various public and group exhibitions in Asia. She is the youngest artist to do a solo exhibition at Whitestone Gallery. She learned calligraphy and seal carving in her childhood, and is studying Eastern philosophy in university. She prides herself as being an Asian contemporary artist not distinguished by nationality. Her paintings make use of oil paints and traditional Chinese materials, and feature a painting style reminiscent of calligraphy.

Arising from her doubt of humanity, her paintings share a common theme of "animality inside humans", and illustrate ephemeral imaginary landscapes where humans and animals meet and interact. The umbrellas that appear in her paintings is a symbolic representation of Asia.
