Shulu Liu, born in Taichung, Taiwan, possesses innate artistic talent. From a young age, he received academic training in the arts and private education in music. Despite facing family pressures and undergoing treatment for ADHD, his unique personality and unwavering determination led him to pursue his own path without succumbing to others' opinions. Shulu initially attended university in New Zealand but made the bold decision to drop out, embarking on a non-traditional path as an artist and performer, embarking on a heroic journey of self-discovery. He is a true artist of life.
In 2008, at the age of 16, Shulu Liu participated in the talent show "Super Idol 2" with exceptional singing skills and a deep love for the arts. His performance gained widespread media exposure and garnered the support of a large fan base. He later worked as a nightclub DJ and held positions as a graphic designer and brand designer at Western Design from 2016 to 2021. These experiences heightened his sensitivity to color and form, reinforcing his commitment to the path of art.
Through various exhibitions and forms of artistic expression, Shulu Liu's belief in the healing power of art was further solidified, embodying the concept of "Romantic Fantasy."
"The concept of Romantic Fantasy guides my artistic practice. I strongly resonate with the ideals of Romanticism, emphasizing personal emotions, imagination, and the pursuit of sublime experiences in my creations. For me, art holds healing power for both the artist and the audience. Creative acts inspired by the Romantic ideals of the 19th century are the most effective means of liberating and purifying the mind and spirit. In my abstract series, I metaphorically incorporate natural imagery into my paintings. Alongside the artwork, I compose soothing music, aiming to help calm thoughts and relax the soul. The act of listening serves as a special barrier between the audience and the daily concerns of life, directing their attention to the artwork, and the act of listening to music adds a temporal dimension that aids the audience's contemplation of the art. My goal is to create an immersive, multisensory artistic experience." - Shulu Liu

"Like cotton, I strive to be soft and adaptable, yet resilient and true to myself."
I am linting, a visual graphic designer in an art gallery. In this artistic environment, my mission is to establish a silent yet powerful bridge between art pieces and the audience through visual design.
My design philosophy is to transform the gallery's interior into a unique space where every corner can encapsulate the essence of the artworks, providing the audience with a deep, interactive, and captivating experience, all without disrupting the inherent characteristics of the art itself. I have previously served as an art editor for organizations such as the Alzheimer's Care Association of the Republic of China, the Yingshi Education Foundation, and various design companies, in addition to numerous remote freelance design projects. My diverse design experiences across different domains have allowed me to develop a versatile style, approaching each artist's vision with gentle flexibility, helping them step by step to manifest their ideals.
