Tao Hui (1987) was born in Yunyang, Chongqing, China. He graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute with a BFA in Oil Painting in 2010 and currently lives and works in Beijing, China.

He won the special award of Contemporary Art Archive from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in 2008 and ‘Art Sanya & Huayu Youth Award’ in Sanya in 2015. He also won the grand prize of 19th “Contemporary Art Festival Sesc Videobrasil”, and was shortlisted for “HUGO BOSS ASIA ART Award for Emerging Asian Artists” and International Competition sector of the KINO DER KUNST festival in 2017.

Tao Hui is interested in his culture and traditional art and folk culture have became main factors in his works. He believes that fairy tales could ease people’s intensive mind. Working with various mediums including graphic arts, painting, video, objects and installation, Tao Hui uses technological procedures and elements from Chinese tradition to question the tenets of globalization, virtual relationships and hegemonic thinking. Visceral and provocative, yet enlightening, Tao Hui’s works force the viewers to confront their own cultural history, way of living and social identity.
