Yu-Mei Huang is a London-based textile artist, whose focus lies in innovative knit practice. Drawing from her East Asian heritage, her works reflect a multicultural background that weaves together various mediums, including subjects such as textile materiality, the body and space, cultural mobility, and displacement.
In her practice, textile materiality and visual information play critical roles in both concept and physical form. Yu-Mei creates a dialogue between visuals and tactile experiences by experimenting with various materials and producing large-scale sculptures and installations that revel in material tactility and the collective experience of space.
Graduating from Royal College of Art, Yu-Mei's interdisciplinary approach examines the boundaries between different disciplines, allowing her to work within a collaborative movement. Her work has been showcased at prestigious events such as London Craft Week and London Fashion Week, as well as exhibitions nationally and internationally over the past several years.
