Born in Xinyang, Henan Province in 1982, Hu Liu graduated from the Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts in 2004. She now lives and works in Beijing. She was a participant in the 2002 Long March Project while still a student, but her mature works reveal a strong interest in Daoist philosophy and a repetitive, physically challenging approach that expands the notion of Drawing. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in China, Europe and the UK including Hu Liu: Dark Wave, ShanghART, Shanghai (2017); 10th Shanghai Biennale ‘Social Factory’, Power Station of Art, Shanghai, China (2014); ON/OFF, Collective Practice in China, UCCA, Beijing, China (2012); Shanshui, Museum of Art Lucerne, Lucerne, Switzerland (2010) and The Temperament of detail, The Red Mansion Foundation, London (2007). In 2013, Hu Liu received the award of 2013 New Youth Pioneer Artist of the Year.
