Artist bio

Yoyo Hu


Yoyo, a Chinese-born sculptor and installation artist, employs new technologies like 3D printing, traditional sculpting, and ceramic techniques to bring her artistic expressions to life.

Central themes in Yoyo's creations revolve around homesickness, the pursuit of meaning in life, and the passage of time. Her personal experiences and cultural background profoundly shape and influence her artwork, lending it a mature and authentic quality.

In the early stages of her artistic journey, Yoyo predominantly focused on creating figurative works inspired by Chinese historical art and stories. However, she has since embarked on a transformative shift from figurative sculpture to sculptural installations.

Rather than abandoning the characters and narratives in her mind, Yoyo now embraces and incorporates them into her installations. Her current artistic presentations stand as majestic and evocative expressions of her culture, captivating viewers with their richness and depth.
