Liao Yibai (b. 1971, Sichuan China) is a multi-discipline Chinese American artist. His works include sculptures, paintings, calligraphies, photography, digital 3D animations, motion graphics, and documentary films.
Liao Yibai’s love of art started at a young age. After graduating from Sichuan Institute of Fine Art, he focused on making sculptures and paintings. Later, he also ventured into film making, directed and produced documentary films. However, digital 3D design is not unfamiliar to Liao Yibai. In order to show his sculptures more efficiently and conveniently to clients, he started working with software for digital 3D designs. Through his work, he is exploring the connection between the virtual world and life itself.
Liao Yibai believes that art is personal. In the age of big data, personal messages mixed with computer programming language have become a unique medium for the expression of feelings, thoughts, and beliefs that touch more souls.
