Artist: Li Zhou



“I paint with my heart, to express my thoughts, to rejoice in sadness.”

Li Zhou was born in Shanghai and realised her love of expression through art at an early age. During her secondary school years, she studied under artist Christopher Wu, a professional painter in the world's most influential portrait gallery in New York (PORTRAITS, INC.). Following her inspiration, she enrolled at the University of Shanghai to complete a Fine Arts Degree as well as qualifications in Fashion Design.

 Since arriving in Australia, Li has successfully pursued a career in fashion, all the while yearning to spend more time expressing herself on canvas. After a personal pilgrimage to Europe, journeying through the landscapes and galleries of the Masters, she returned to painting as a professional artist in 2012.

 Many of her works pursue the theme of women and Li uses her own language of painting to express primitive and complex inner thoughts. The concept is not of superficial beauty in female form; Li is conveying a silent and powerful energy. This is the process of finding her way. Li’s works appear in private collections in Victoria, interstate and internationally. She has also won numerous awards.

 Recently, she has been a finalist in the Rick Amor Self Portrait Prize 2019 and the Eutick Memorial Still Life Award 2019.
