Liang Juhui was born in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province in 1959. Along with Chen Shaoxiong and Lin Yilin, Liang joined the Southern Artists Salon in the mid-1980s, at which point he had already been working as an artistic director at the TV station for ten years. After the Southern Artists Salon disbanded in 1989, Liang along with Chen Shaoxiong and Lin Yilin co-founded the experimental artist collective Big Tail Elephant. At the same time, he started his study at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, graduating from the printmaking department in 1992. Similar to Chen and Lin, Liang’s oeuvre is concerned with the rapid commercialisation in Guangzhou and how that affected the daily lives of the everyday people. Over a career of more than 20 years, Liang’s artworks have subtly commented on and intervened in the city’s process of modernisation, creating heterotopias alongside constructions sites and crowded street spaces.

Liang passed away from an acute heart attack at the age of 47 in 2006.
