Bei Yu (b 1993) is a Chinese-born, international artist now living in London. He uses the problematic format of different languages and images to translate and interpret the voice of his generation, including personal grumbles, life on the Internet, the intertextuality of different cultures, recycled historical images, and self-questioning in art. Yu's works deal with the issues of translation and interpretation of images and texts from different cultures and nationalities. His artwork is always preceded by a lot of research into visual culture, fiction and philosophy, and questioning himself has been become a lifestyle choice that allows him to push himself forward. For instance, he always puts the audience into his models and makes questioning his concept part of the experience of his artwork.
