Su Yongjian was born in Nanning, Guangxi in June 1994. He studied at Central Academy of Fine Arts(CAFA) for undergraduate, master degrees, and currently studying for a PhD student in Art and Technology. During the study, he exchanged study abroad at HfG Karlsruhe (ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe) in Germany. He was the only winner of “First Step Award (千里行奖)” in 2017, which is the highest academic award for fresh graduate of CAFA. His works have been exhibited in important exhibitions many times around China, Switzerland, and Germany. Recent exhibitions include "The 13th National Exhibition of Fine Arts", "Beyond the Anthropocene - An Exhibition of Future Science & Art", "Variations - 3rd Anren Biennale", "Shenzhen & Hong Kong BI-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture", "Post Life - 2018 Beijing Media Art Biennale" and "Wuzhen Contemporary Art Exhibition".

His main works involve and are not limited to the media and the method of electronic media, biological materials, mechanical manufacturing, machine learning, interdisciplinary, and cross-field cooperation, in response to the exploration and speculation of the new counterbalance relationship and the boundary between human, machine and nature constituted by the technical environment itself.
