About

Yi Pei (b. 1989, Malaysia) completed Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Tsinghua University, Beijing in 2012 and Master of Art Curatorship at the University of Melbourne in 2017. His works are greatly inspired by travelling experience and living environment, as well as everyday objects. In saying that, the artist is constantly wandering in between realism and abstraction (or imagination) in making his art. Yi Pei is interested in creating visual rhythm, interesting composition, and contrast of blank spaces (white shapes) with coloured objects (coloured shapes).
