Lu Lei was born in Jiangsu in 1972. He graduated from the Sculpture Department of China Academy of Art in 1998, now works and lives in Beijing.
As one of the important artists in contemporary Chinese installation art, Lu Lei's works show sensitivity and precise control of material texture. His works often exude classical mysticism and allegorical inner qualities. Lu Lei is good at creating images of vivid imagination. In his works, social symbols, personal memories and sensitive intuitions of material attributes are combined to form a closed system with hidden orders.
