Diving into the realms of human nature, where love, hate, and desire finds their roots, J. (Jie) Li’s artistic expression is characterized by overlapping figuration and abstraction in her paintings.

Li’s artworks are recognizable by delicate, sensitive, and sharp brushstrokes, reflecting the essence of Chinese calligraphy. Although she primarily works with watercolor, Li challenges conventional views of the medium as her paintings defy expectations, offering a less transparent, more deliberate, and nontraditional take on watercolor.
