Vincent (Xuexian) Li


Artist Statement

Most of Vincent’s works are related to politics because he thinks art is the condensation and refinement of life. It should be beautiful and pure, with the personal inclination of the creator. Vincent’s work must be to show and extract what he thinks is valuable. And daily life is intrinsically tied to politics. The world itself is full of injustices and defects. The cracks caused by social tearing are where Vincent’s artistic inspiration begins to grow. Vincent’s artworks create a harmless space for different views and positions; he wants to inspire social individuals to reflect. Creating art should be accompanied by a sense of social responsibility. Although it may cause ideological collisions, There is an old saying in China: “Although the medicine is bitter, it is conducive to treating the disease. Faithful advice is often not like listening, but it is good for action.” After the work is released, it should trigger thinking before it can be regarded as qualified art.

Vincent’s visual design has a near-future 2D computer graphics style with false aesthetics. This corrupted but straightforward style itself reflects the current social issues and because only with the help of computer technology, in this way, can busy individuals stop in the fast-paced life to give this “useless” thing so called-art a precious little time. Therefore, all his works are interactive installation arts, turn social individuals from society’s productivity tools into an independent thinking audience, and find themselves within.
