Yu Ji was born in Shanghai in 1985, and graduated from the Fine Art College of Shanghai University and later soon is considered one of the most potential, emerging young sculptors in China. Her works are easily recognized by simplified outline along with rich textures and layers. Unlike many abstract sculptors, Yu-Ji doesn’t carry out pure stylistic experimentation and resorting to all kind of forms in her artist expression; she finds her ways to make her creation as a physical experience of actually bringing something into life.
