Liu Ye Bio

About The Artist

Born in Beijing in 1964, Liu Ye studied industrial design and mural painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts before moving to Germany to pursue an MFA at the Fine Arts University in Berlin. His work has been exhibited extensively in China and Germany, and is well represented in the Uli Sigg Collection of contemporary Chinese art in Switzerland. Best-known for his colorful cartoon like characters in playful, naughty adolescent scenes, the artist has conspicuously chosen to steer away from politics and focus his artwork on human emotions.
