- Snow Yunxue Fu
Snow Yunxue Fu is a new media artist, curator, and educator who lives and works in Chicago. She has been actively showing work, organizing exhibitions, and hold lectures and presentations internationally and nationally in America. Her artwork approaches the subject of the Sublime using topographical computer rendered animation installation. She exams and interprets the world around her through digital space and virtual reality, where she draws a parallel to the realms of multi-dimensionality, the physical, the virtual, and the metaphysical.
She obtained a M.F.A. degree from the Film, Video, New Media, and Animation department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She also obtains a B.F.A. degree in Painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Southeast Missouri State University, and a B.A. in Fine Art from Sichuan Normal University in China.
Fu has presented her work and research in institutions, symposiums, and conferences, such as the SIGGRAPH Anaheim 2016’s CG in Asia Panel, the 15th Biennial of Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology. She has given artist talk at the Elmhurst Art Museum, Chicago Artist Coalition, Lido Art Center in Guangzhou China, and Guizhou Minzu (Nationalities) University in Guiyang China, the Flickering Bodies Panel of SAIC's Celebrating Women in New Media Symposium in 2016, and the Trans-National Identity Symposium in 2017.
Her early painting work, Kissing the Mother, is in the permanent collection of the National Museum of China in 1994, keeping the record of one of the youngest artists in the collection.
