LI DAIYUN   李岱云

 

1977 born in Beijing, China.
 

Li Daiyun is a realist painter who approaches her art in a methodical, disciplined manner. After having graduated in 2001 with a BA in Oil Painting from the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA), she has participated in numerous group exhibitions throughout Asia and Europe over the last decade. Her studio resembles a laboratory or restaurant kitchen, with stacks of metal paint trays neatly organized shelf by shelf, accurately reflecting her meticulous methodology towards art making.

 

She usually begins a work with a visual image in mind and deconstructs it scientifically with grids by selecting areas of color and mixing a myriad of hues in plastic icing containers. First laying her canvas flat, then dropping paint in quadrants so she can focus on the detail and let loose her mind while defining her painterly handprint.  Li Daiyun approaches her painting with a realist’s eye, making the image more understandable to the viewer while adding a dimension to the work by allowing the acrylic paints to mix organically.
