Li began his career in the comics industry in 1982. After working for a corporate comics publisher in Hong Kong for a month, he decided to start his own venture as a freelancer. Following on from the release of The Wisely series, he self-published Tong Men Shao Nian, a prominent title that rocketed him to fame in 1987. He has since developed a distinctive art style, creating his own visual world with eerily experimental works that broke genre rules.
Black Mask, Assassins, Tien Yao Ji, Superbaby, Little Strawberry, and K are major works that he created in the early stage of his career. Selected publications from this decade include The Voyager, The Lover, and Folio, Little Circle, Vicious and Solar Eclipse.
Li’s transmedia creations transcend the boundary of comics and expand into movies, experimental theatres, literature, pop music and sculptures. His idiosyncratic style has attracted attention and commissions from local and international brands such as Nike, New Balance, IdN, Uniqlo, Starbucks and Hong Kong International Airport.
Li is also well-known to the international comics scene. His comics have been published in places like Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Mainland China, France and Italy since the 90s.
In 2016, the Hong Kong Arts Centre had jointly curated Li’s solo exhibition with the Angoulême International Comics Festival in France as one of the Festival’s thematic exhibitions. His French comic The Beast, a collaborative project with the famous Belgian writer Jean Dufaux, was released at the same time. This solo exhibition had given birth to another international cooperation opportunity. Li was invited by the Louvre Museum to create a new comics Moon of the Moon. The French version has been released in November 2019 in Europe, with a Hong Kong Chinese version keenly in preparation by the local publisher, Today Publications.
