Born in 1983 in Tianjin, China.
A graduate of the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts with Bachelor’s degree in oil painting, Huang completed her master’s degree in Germany at the Essen College of Liberal Arts. It was this experience abroad that motivated her to begin critically examining the cultural roots of the art she was making and the energy and emotions within it. Although she had never formally studied Chinese ink painting, it was at that time that Huang began experimenting with different materials including ink on paper, eager to find the aesthetic and perceptual basis for her own work. Similar to well-known expatriate artists such as Chu Teh-Chun and Zao Wou-Ki, Huang discovered that abstraction was a key to expressing the energy and spirit within—the “qi” of ink. Today, Huang works in a variety of artistic media creating textural and evocative abstractions, which source their perceptual vocabulary from ink painting. Huang’s works can be found in the collections of the Women’s Museum, Bonn, Germany, the Essen College of Liberal Arts, Germany, the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts, and the Times Museum, Guangzhou.
