Liyana is an artist born and raised in Singapore. She focuses on the idea of examining negative and positive shapes and spaces that derive from the traces cast from the moulds of found and constructed wooden structures. Her practice and research includes being sensitive to 'ephemeral' factors such as the impact of our environment and how it affects the materiality of the work as it  is being made and realised.

Another aspect of her interest is how the artist's body and movements impact the discovery of shapes formed by her process of material handling, casting and spatial arrangement. She is also the recipient of the Chan-Davies Art Prize for the year of 2019. Liyana Ali graduated from LASALLE College of the Arts / Goldsmith University of London with a Master of Arts Fine Arts with a Distinction.
