Lives and works in London

Effie Wanyi Li received a BA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in 2019 and an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art.
Effie’s paintings reflect her strong passion for investigating the internal mechanisms of the body, both physical and psychological. Her practice often focuses on exploring the alternative structure of the inner human body and its reaction caused by mental states. Effie’s work aims to make sense of how human beings actually function, using painting as a synchronous dialogue with her body and mind.
