Pi-Hua Hsu

Pi-Hua Hsu, born in Taiwan in 1957, graduated from the Department of Education of National Chengchi University in 1979. Under the influence of Formosa’s beautiful mountains, rivers and culture, she cultivated her spiritual temperament of optimism. In 1987, she went to the United States and majored in art history at the Art Research Institute of the University of California, Berkeley. In 1989, she went to the Boston Academy of Fine Arts to major in painting. After Europe and the United States returned to China in 1993, for more than 20 years, she lived in Laoquan, Taipei. A happy contemporary art traveler!

Its full creative soul comes from music, dance, writing, ikebana, color, meditation, natural landscape, cultural classics, etc. However, she “raised” her “spiritual abstract paintings” with feminine energy and oriental artistic conception with the creation and life philosophy of “subtraction”. She is good at making use of surrounding elements and Western media, her colors are clear and full of contemporary fashion thoughts; her brushwork has the unique force and spirit of Chinese calligraphy, and she also integrates abstract expressionism, cubism and color field painting styles. Unrestrained and condensed, it can be retracted freely, and the work presents a large, carefree and positive life energy.

Since the first exhibition in 1982, she has had dozens of solo exhibitions and participated in international exhibitions in New York, Paris, Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, Beijing, Guangzhou, Xiamen, Shanghai, London, Belgium, and Germany. With more than 30 years of professional creation, Pi-Hua Hsu has gone from realism, freehand brushwork, to abstraction… just like the cultivation process of life, leading us into her artistic realm of grandiose, lyrical, carefree, and full of spirituality. Today, her paintings, cross-border art, videos, and installations are favored and collected by all walks of life.
