The study of light and colour and their cultural connotations constitute the core of Li Shurui's (b.1981, Chongqing) artistic practice. The artist believes that the use of light and colour can embody, record, and shape individuals' needs and spirituality in different cultures and times, which is also related to their collective ideology in a broader sense.

Shurui’s work has been exhibited in a number of group and solo exhibitions in major museums, including ‘High Light: Splendor Worn Thin in the Recesses of Time’, Long Art Museum, Shanghai (2021); ’An Interdisciplinary Exhibition: Spiritual Origin’, Long Museum, Shanghai (2019); ‘Constellation’, Georgian National Museum, Georgia (2017); ‘No Man’s Land: Women Artists from the Rubell Family Collection’, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington (2016). ‘No Longer / Not Yet’, Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai, China (2015); ’28 Chinese’, Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, USA (2015). ​​​

Shurui's paintings are housed in the public collections of Fosun Foundation, Shanghai; DSL Collection, Paris; Domus Collection, Beijing; John Dodelande Collection, France; Long Art Museum, Shanghai; Sifang Art Museum, Shanghai; The Rubell Family Collection, US; The Estella Collection, US; and Ullens Collection, Beijing.
