"In my opinion, artistic creation is not painting what you see, but painting yourself, painting what you feel, your aesthetic sense, your character, and your life experience. On the matter of what is painted, the people, still things or sceneries, the final expression of the picture is yourself."
HOLLY LIU is a published international visual artist based in New York City. She was invited to exhibit at galleries in the United States and Europe. She has been selected as one of the Top 60 Masters of Contemporary Art in 2023 and awarded the Oskar of Visual Arts by ArtTour International Magazine.
Holly was born to a loving family in China, and is now living in New York City, USA. Holly was exposed to a great deal of artistic inspiration through her father, who had a passion for the arts. And it was bequeathed to her by her father. She began her schooling in painting at a very early age, later earning a degree in Visual Communication. Now she works as a freelance artist, with works in private collections.
Holly shares her talents and knowledge with others. Many times, Holly has assisted her students in holding art shows throughout the city of New York. In addition, she has led students to success in numerous art competitions, in which they have gone on to win prizes. The student-run play "The Painting of the Crane" was also shown on the performance stage at City Field Stadium. The majority of Holly's creative inspiration comes from her religious beliefs, and she frequently experiences inspiration while praying. She believes that God's blessings will last forever.
