HU Rui is a Los Angeles-based artist who works primarily with digitally generated image and written text. Looking at historical events, personal experiences and previous cultural productions as sources, he maintains a semi-fictional archive of texts, objects, and characters to which he finds an emotionally attachment. His work often stems from this personal archive and reconstructs certain elements in new conditions and timelines, attempting to test their possibilities in terms of narrative, meaning, and psychological effect.

Rui holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of California, Los Angeles, a Bachelor of Fine Arts from New York University, and has studied literature and film. His work has been shown at venues including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Netherlands; the Images Festival at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada; Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl, Germany; International Symposium on Electronic Art, Hong Kong; and the Australian Center for the Moving Image, Australia.
