Xiaoqiao Li is a research-based artist and a current senior lecturer at the Department of Creative Arts under the School of Arts and Social Science at the Hong Kong Metropolitan University (HKMU).

He completed his Bachelor of Arts in Visual Art at the Faculty of Arts and Design, Macao Polytechnic University and his MA in Visual Arts at Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London. He holds a PhD from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University, and was awarded the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS).
