Collection: Enzhao Liu

Chinese-born Philadelphia artist Enzhao Liu is a painter whose aesthetic is a blend of eastern and western cultures, realism and surrealism, natural and simulated- descriptors that define hias inspiration to "create an ideal landscape for the animals, where birds are singing and happily living in a peaceful kingdom". Liu's work has been described as a celebration of nature with its beauty depicted through color, lines, circles, dots, and patterns.

Liu's imagery is referenced from art history, the internet, and his imagination. He alters the animals, birds, flowers, and sky appropriately to accentuate its magic, mystery, and complexity. The compositions are dense and spatially compressed where everything co-exists harmoniously. The highly detailed paintings feature jewels to discover including his uniquer color palette, patterning, and the presence of exotic plants.
