Lai Pei-Yu, born 1976 Taiwan Taipei, graduated in 2007 from the Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts, and currently a doctoral candidate in Art and Theory in Tainan National University of The Arts. Lai was a residency artist in countries such as Taiwan, Japan and America; member of the Sly Art Space. Her works have been exhibited in Taiwan, Japan, China, France, America and various other places around the world, and her City series was collected by the National Taiwan Museum, Taiwan Design Center, Bank Art 1929 Yokohama, Japan.

Symbols and its representation has always been a subject which Lai Pei-Yu is interested in, and her most well-known works are the City Series, which when first viewed seemed like images of city landscapes, but on closer inspection the picture is composed from circular symbols, and these circular dots are similar in appearance to minimalist styled light sources, therefore when viewing the works, the viewers have to translate the symbols into their corresponding scenes within their own memory to complete the cityscape, during the process also reflect on the relationship of encoding and translating. Through the reinterpretation of the artist, resulting cityscapes of different locations appears to bare a resemblance, highlighting the current state of globalization.
