About the Artist
Danny Liu (MFA, RMIT) is a visual artist destined in exploring the ink medium rooted from Chinese culture and aesthetics. Born in Hong Kong, Danny sets his artistic ideologies among Mother Nature and urban development through the changes of Victoria Harbour, mountains and landscape.

Liu continually embarks on a journey in experimenting his artistic concepts beyond ink, material and tools for his project “Where’s the Mountain?” Liu founded Dan’s Studio in 2013 and registered it as painting society in 2018 with 100+ members currently. While selected as finalist in Art Revolution Taipei (2015 & 2019), Liu’s works have been commissioned for Cathay Pacific, Sun Hung Kai Properties and Art Central, and exhibited in Australia, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia while genuinely collected.
