Bibi Lei (b. 1985, Macau, China) is a Portuguese-Chinese artist based in Tokyo, Japan. Lei describes herself as a “childlike soul that never grows old,” which shines through in her dreamy, playful, and iridescent paintings. The self-taught artist works intuitively, using her hands as her primary tool. Unbound gestures form energetic scenes populated by Lei’s signature characters, which she often refers to as “the children” or “girls”. With curious eyes, the girls interact with one another and bravely explore the fantastical world of each canvas.
