Arts College of Yunnan Arts University, where he majored in printmaking.
Since 2002, he has been primarily engaged in the creation of performance art,
video works, and other forms of conceptual art, exhibiting both within China
and abroad.
In 2005, he planned and initiated the art project Jianghu, which received
much national attention. Luo Fei has been Gallery Director of TCG Nordica

contemporary art scenes unique within a greater art landscape, building
bridges for dialogue and collaboration in the Chinese contemporary art field
in an increasingly globalized world. His book To Start from Art: Essays and
Interviews on Chinese Contemporary Art has been published by Shanghai
