Born in 1975 in Beijing, China.
Since graduating from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, in 2000, Hu has had numerous group shows around Asia. His complex and mesmerizing works, marked by Tibetan Buddhism, draws from the Chinese and Western pictorial traditions. Huang’s artistic language stands apart from his peers and at first glance, appears to be detached from current social contexts. Nonetheless, despite the surrealist quality of his paintings, a general sense of sarcasm about politics exists. Huang’s paintings are characterised by their distinctive eerie aura, achieved through multiple layers of pure oil paints and acrylics on canvases.
