Zoe Liu was born and raised in Hong Kong and currently resides in Honolulu, Hawai‘i. She received her Bachelor of Fine Art degree at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, along with Outstanding Undergraduate Awards in Drawing and Digital Imaging. Since her studies, Zoe has developed her practice while working as a teaching artist at Honolulu Museum of Art School, Oahu Art and Tech, Hawaii State Art Museum and Hawaii State Art Foundation on Culture and the Arts. She is also the founder of Art Tent Studio.

Along with her teaching, Zoe has exhibited her work at a number of international exhibitions including the Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong, Art Stage Singapore, Ink Asia 2017, Affordable Art Fair Singapore and Asia Contemporary Art Show. Her collection “Let them be Kids” had accepted and auctioned at Ravenel, Taipei in Dec 2018.

Zoe primarily employs ink, watercolor, pastel, charcoal, and gesso on paper and panels, and investigates existential questions, social contradictions, and education issues. In particular issues about silencing and forced-feeding education style. Her latest series Take Me back to the Garden is based on her meditation on growth, and inspiration from the Garden of Eden. These works can be read as a visualization of her teaching and spiritual experiences.

Zoe主要使用墨水、水彩、粉彩、炭筆和灰泥在紙張和板材上創作,探討存在主義問題、社會矛盾和教育議題,特別是有關沉默和強迫灌輸式教育風格的問題。她最新的系列作品《Take Me back to the Garden》是基於她對成長的冥想和對伊甸園的靈感。這些作品可以被解讀為她教學和精神體驗的視覺化呈現。
