Lindi Shi was born in China in 1995, but relocated to the USA for her university studies. She has a constantly expanding practice, producing work in a variety of media including woodcut prints, paper sculpture, installation art and textiles. Running throughout her work is a fascination with material, in particular paper, and how this can influence form and storytelling. Her illustrative prints have a strong sense of narrative, drawing upon everything from folk tales to children’s stories to everyday experiences. Her work focuses on participation with the audience and how they can relate to the stories that she tells through illustrative art.
