(b. 1971, Kunming, China)
Chen Li is a master painter and woodblock printmaker, whose work is in The British Museum. With boundless originality, depth of scope, and constant innovation Chen Li creates a unique visual language that melds East and West. He is inspired by the spectacular landscapes and predominantly Buddhist and introspective philosophy of his native Yunnan, a frontier province in southwest China. Chen Li’s philosophy is the pursuit of inner happiness. His joyful artworks are at times dynamic, at times peaceful, but always harmonious.
