Du Liu

Central Saint Martins

Du Liu’s ambiguous and intriguing portraits combine religious imagery, influences of historical painting and contemporary motifs. The title refers to the birth date of the subject, a friend of the artist who wished for Liu to design her tattoo. The combination of the painterly brushstrokes and tattoo culture influences give the work a humorous tone that subverts the expectations of traditional painting and conventional pictorial references.
