Lei Han

Han Lei (b. 1960, China) is an artist currently living and working in Beijing. He is credited as a pioneer of Chinese photography following the Cultural Revolution. Han Lei has developed an expansive and complex artistic practice working across media including sculpture, installation, and painting, though photography remains his favorite medium. He is noted for the elaborate pageantry and low-saturation of his images.

Han’s work has been exhibited at the Kwangju Museum of Art, the Guangzhou Museum of Art, the Gwangju Museum of Art, the Guangzhou Photography Biennial, and the Prague International Museum, among others places.
