Nu Li


Nu Li is an independent artist. He graduated with an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art in 2015. He won the 2015 RBS (Royal British Society of Sculptors) Bursary Awards, and as a member of RBS, lives and works in Beijing.

Nu Li roots in everyday life. He subverts the perceived boundaries between documentary and fiction, representation and abstraction to explore and achieve a poetic language in art. Through capturing the details of everyday life, he aims to reflect the individual’s mood swings and the menial state of population in the evolution of macro-society. The apparently unpromising materials of everyday life are transformed into something metaphorical, poignant, humorous, poetic or dramatic, challenging us to question our received experiences about life and see the world afresh. It is always wandering between a void and the solid.
