Born in Tainan, Taiwan in 1985, Xu, Xiao-li graduated from the Department of Painting and Calligraphy Arts of National Taiwan University of the Arts. She’s been Learning East and West paintings for many years and painting for her is kind of a happy fantasy and a way out of the real life. From "Stone Series" to the current "The Other Side Series", they’re like the painter's self-combing of all stages of life, expressing her external observation and inner emotions through the symbolic and organic symbols.
People, animals and plants, and the natural environment are symbiotic after the metamorphosis in the ecosystem, and they continue to evolve and proliferate. And that gives the artist more stimulative to deconstruct and reconstruct when making the art. Now Xiao-li is at the stage of the other side.
