Biography from Christie's Hong Kong:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Fuzhou in 1940, Li Xubai is a lover of Chinese classics and worked as editor for art and collecting magazines The World of Collectors and Dragon Roots when he moved to Hong Kong in 1979. Li currently lives in Canada and spends much time painting and travelling in various parts of China to gain inspiration for his artistic creations. Li Xubai is a rare example of a contemporary painter and a poet. He uses negative space to convey snow, streams, rivers, clouds, and mists, radiating a glowing light that contrasts sharply with the darker tones of mountains and vegetation. In the style of classical landscape painting, Li does not employ perspective; the mountain flows in mid-air without revealing its peak or its bottom. Li's landscapes are built by unconventional shapes, formed by jagged lines that twist and turn at abrupt angles. This exotic, geometric perception has provided a strange, almost digital sense of modernity in his work.
