Weihui Lu

Weihui Lu was born in Shanghai, China, and grew up in Queens, New York. Combining the aesthetics of traditional Chinese landscape painting with Abstract Expressionism, her work explores the immigrant experience through personal narrative, as well as the broader environmental and psychological implications of the modern landscape.

Her work has been exhibited at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Trestle Gallery, Site:Brooklyn, 440 Gallery and Oxford Arts Alliance, among others, and she has been awarded residencies at Byrdcliffe (NY), ChaNorth (NY), Arteles Creative Center (Finland), Arts, Letters and Numbers (NY), Trestle Art Space (NY), and Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill (MA). Recent grants and fellowships include the Milton and Sally Avery Visual Arts Fellowship, the Queens Council on the Arts New Work Grant, and the City Artist Corps Grant. Lu holds a B.A. from Barnard College, Columbia University.
