Chen Zirui is a media artist. His works are often based on his own identity, talking about historical, political and social issues from the perspective of technology and media, and attempting to connect the complexity between these issues, and beyond the issues themselves, he also tries to make the way in which narratives are constructed visible. His works include experimental videos and installations.

Chen Zirui had his Bachelor's degree in Painting from the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute and his Master's degree from the Haute école des arts du Rhin.
