Hung Liu

Hung Liu (b. 1948) is a contemporary Chinese painter known for her large depictions of traditional and contemporary Chinese women, children, and refugees in muted, earthy hues.

Born in Changchun, China, she attended Beijing Teachers College and studied mural painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.  She later attended the University of California in San Diego.  Her work draws from both the imagery of ancient Chinese art, as well as the Chinese Socialist Realist style of painting, and most of her paintings are based on anonymous Chinese historical photographs.   She has received extensive honors and awards for her work, including two painting fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and a Joan Mitchell Fellowship.
