Dilan Li finished her BFA in painting and drawing at the University of Utah in 2018. Since then, the main focus of her work has been identity exploration of herself as well as the two cultures she grew up in. She mainly works on paper and uses ink, pastel, watercolor, etc.
“In this piece is the Chinese character “我” (pronounced “wuo”) which means “I” or “myself.” The piece is done in a style similar to a work of traditional chinese calligraphy, but I left out certain marks in the character and made it look almost illegible. The piece is about my effort in seeking identity growing up in the very different Eastern and Western culture.”
