Li Hei Di

Like nothing else in the universe, Chinese artist Li Hei Di expresses the often repressed senses of raw human desires in her pieces. Li Hei Di translated the everpresent longings and attempts to understand the most primal human desire and emotions, into elusive marks that transform between abstraction and figuration.

Li Hei Di was born in Shenyang, China, studied at Maryland Institute College of Art, and Chelsea College of Art, and received her BA in Fine Art in 2020. Li Hei Di is currently completing her MA in Painting at Royal College of Art in London.

The sensuality and romance of seduction manifested in her artworks through Li Hei Di’s fluent intricate strokes, and the mating dance of colours atop her medium. Within her pieces flows ambiguity to eroticism which comes back to romance, imbued with fear and melancholy, and fragmented bodies that flash in dreams. Her artistic style is inspired by the suggested eroticism in Chinese literature and cinema, with its subtlety and provocation, invoking a cinematic choreography in her brushstrokes.

As a whole, this artistic exploration of this interest may serve as a temporary getaway from the very different reality of delicate restrictions or repressions of the level of openness she would like to embody in her everyday identity. A level where the details of subtle sexuality that is well-woven in the little mundane everyday moments, is celebrated instead.
