Ivy Wu was born in Shanghai, China, she grew up in this fascinating eastern city, a melting pot of cultures and immigrated to United States in 2013. She was 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 the winner of 39th SCAD Sidewalk Art Festival, featured as a passionate contemporary artist on Visionary Artistry Magazine, featured artist in VoyageATL Magazine, reported in Whitewall Art Magazine, and in other publications. She is living in Atlanta, Georgia.   

 

Wu embraces vivacious brushstrokes in her abstraction work, vibrating with explosive colors and sense of lines. With a spontaneous burst of energy, she is an artist mesmerized by colors, painting rapidly in an intuitive way. She brings an enormous range of inspirations to her work from stories, nature and landscape. Beyond visual culture, Wu has synaesthetic response to the world. The immediate surroundings, the complexity of lived experiences lies the heart of her practice. In the myths of pleasure, the composition hovers on the edge of the abstraction and figuration that is absorbing in an open dimension.
