b. 1998

Lives and works in London.


Luna Sue Huang (b.1998) is a Chinese artist currently based in London. She graduated from the Hubei Institute of Fine Arts in Painting in 2019, and then completed the MA in Illustration and Visual Media at the University of the Arts London in 2021.


She primarily works with the medium of painting, drawing, and printmaking. Her work is heavily influenced by her interest in feminism and spiritual introspection. She uniquely blends these themes with a focus on the traditional colors of Chinese Dunhuang wall paintings, incorporating enigmatic symbols and a keen sense of composition and rhythm. Inspired by Eastern philosophy, she narrates in a calm, poetic way, expressing hidden and profound emotions, and raising her own questions about real societal issues.

Growing up in a strict traditional Chinese family, I've always felt torn between societal expectations and my rebellious nature, fuelling my quest for identity and shaping my artistic journey. This personal struggle, combined with my experience living in a Buddhist temple learning Vipassana Meditation, deepened my connection to the universe and inspired my exploration of emotional connections and societal issues through art.


Within the context of contemporary art, my artistic practice adopts a unique perspective, focusing on feminism, Western psychoanalysis, and Eastern Zen philosophy to explore how everything is emotionally interconnected. My art centres on topics that aren't often discussed in the mainstream Western art scene, such as the impact of traditional Asian family values and socio-cultural pressures on Asian women and the LGBTQ+ community. It discusses themes of self-alienation, transformation, suppression, introspection, confinement, and surveillance.


By combining my personal experiences with broader societal themes, my art is not only a journey of self-discovery and enhancing social consciousness but also a testament to the power of art as a means of expression and healing. It validates and affirms human emotions, fostering resilience and determination in the face of adversity and the transient nature of life.


Deeply influenced by Eastern philosophy, my work is characterised by tranquillity, poetry, and symbolism. I aim to capture the fleeting emotional moments of life, transforming socio-cultural issues into new forms of self-reflection and questioning on both personal and societal levels.


Furthermore, my project highlights the significant progress of Asian women in self-awakening and self-education in recent years, showcasing the process of self-remaking through art. This exploration is not only a personal and societal journey but also demonstrates the inner strength and capacity for self-recovery of Asian women, showing how they achieve empowerment and psychological independence through enhanced self-awareness, education, and artistic creation.
