LUPA was born in California in 1989. She received her BA degree in fashion design womenswear from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London in 2012. She is currently based in Taipei, working in areas including painting, illustration, sculpture, fashion design, and music composition.
Regardless of the media, her visual language always exudes an air of Eastern mysticism and fantasy literature.
In the construction of magical and surreal sites, she has created her own context of symbols and forms. She transforms life experiences in reality or dreams into scenes and represents them with primitive, sensuous contours to explore the psychological states of the archetypal figure.
She has extended these characteristics to her compositions, giving them an arrangement like the proscenium stage to interpret the interaction between the image and the spectator.
The diversity of ethnicity and metaphor of fertility could also be found in her visual approach. She explores self, complex, shadow and collective unconscious by visualizing the inner space through art. She chooses to achieve mutual interaction between her audience and the motif through atmosphere-evoking and immersive images to further state an inner, deeper resistance within people in the social context.
