Szu-Wei Ho

Szu-Wei Ho is an artist from Taichung, Taiwan. After more than eleven years in Brooklyn, New York, she has moved back to her home country in 2020.

Influenced by literature, especially children's literature, and her home, Taiwan, she transforms what she perceives and remembers into various characters who live in their own world. That world is full of fun, playfulness, but also dark and strange.

Animals, plants and marine lives appear in her imagery, but always have a little bit of illogical metamorphosis. Being narrative and illustrative is not meant to restrict the viewer from their own interpretation, but to welcome a wilder story not yet finished.

Drawing, printmaking, and ceramics are the main medium of her current body of work.
