Ivy Wu | Artist

Ivy Wu is a Chinese American, a passionate contemporary painting artist. Born in Shanghai, China, Wu grew up in this fascinating eastern city, a melting pot of cultures and immigrated to United States in 2013. With the deep sense to express her vision by playing colors and lines, the center of her art is the joy of human creation in different manifestations, the beauty of existence. Wu is granted the Honor Award by Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) to study in her graduate school of M.F.A. painting. She is living in Atlanta, Georgia.  

 

Bound by Eastern and Western artistic influences, she blends Eastern art concepts by painting calligraphic lines and vivacious brushstrokes into oil paintings in a non-representational way. Recently, she's merging the Eastern culture that is in her blood, resurfacing into Western oil painting in her abstraction creation of environments.
