Webson Ji

Lin Ji (b. 1995) also known as Webson Ji, is a New York-based Chinese multimedia artist. He holds an MA degree in Sculpture from Savannah College of Art and Design and a BFA in Public Art from China Academy of Art. Webson Ji is a member of the International Sculpture Center, a member of the New England Sculptors Association and an associate member of the National Sculpture Society.

The exploration of the essence of materiality is the driving force throughout Webson's artistic career. His background as competitive swimmer during his youth contributes to his perspective on the nature and movement of water. As such, Webson’s practice focuses on the presentation of this substance, combining it with various industrial materials to present the viewer with a unique interpretation of his meditation.

Webson Ji is the winner of many international competitions and awards. In July 2018, Webson was honored as the Best Young Artist of the Year of 2018 GAMMA Young Artist Competition in Tokyo, Japan, out of 226 participants from over 26 different countries. In February 2019, Webson was selected as one of the significant Asian artists for a group show called "Here There" in the World Trade Center, New York by the Asian Cultural Center.
