Li Yonggeng is originally from Changde in Hunan province and is a self-taught artist who specializes in the transformation of everyday objects into works of art. For the last 20 years, the artist has been working on two series called Do and Sew, which aims to blur the boundary between experience and creation. The artist creates his art by transforming the objects he encounters in his everyday life, as well as constructing installations in the places where he happens to be staying at a particular time. Li captures his emotions and personal experiences at a particular time, translating them into his work.
