Graduated from the Fine Arts Department in South China Normal University, Guangzhou, Li works primarily with sculpture and installation, altering and reworking existing objects and materials accrued in a region renowned as the industrial hub in the Pearl River Delta.

Li Jinghu’s poetically-charged, minimalist approach is chiefly influenced by his personal experience of living and working in the city of Dongguan – an area that has become a major manufacturing hub in the Pearl River Delta. Using materials ‘Made in China’ to reflect on China’s contemporary socio-political, economic and cultural reality, Li’s work is characterized by its simple and restrained formal presentation, and celebrated for its powerful impact and emotional depth.
