As an artist, Siyi Xiao creates works that are deeply rooted in her personal experiences of displacement and cultural disconnection. Her works, primarily in oil and mixed media, explore themes of personal identity and memory, inspired by her own experiences of living away from her family and country.Drawing upon her own life experiences, Xiao uses abstract forms to express the complex and nuanced emotions associated with disconnection from one's culture. Her works are an exploration of the sense of loss that comes with being separated from one's roots, and the challenges of navigating a new cultural landscape.
