Ann Niu

Ann Niu, a native of Shanghai, went to Japan to study at the prestigious Musashino Fine Art University. After graduation, she started working in art and design and spent some time in Korea. As she moved to the USA, she started to focus exclusively on her art. Since her return to Shanghai in 2000, she established a permanent residency and devoted her time to painting.

Ann Niu's works have been exhibited in China, Singapore, Japan, France, the Netherlands, Australia and collected by the Singapore National Art Museum, Shanghai Art Museum, HSBC Private Bank and Stephen A. Schwarzman Education Foundation as well as private collectors worldwide. She now shares her life and works between Shanghai, Taipei and San Francisco. Ann Niu’s paintings are full of tension, extending beyond their own edges and into infinity, creating a feeling of forward movement and restlessness.
