Yuqiao Guo
Born 1992 in Beijing, China | Lives and works in London, UK

Trained as an architect and multimedia artist, Yuqiao Guo sees her painterly practice as a product of her fascination with self-portraiture and interest in the narrative capacities of the body. Approaching the majority of her work through an autobiographical lens, Guo paints her figures in a way that closely balances surrealism with intimacy, creating striking visual metaphors for the fleeting moments of self-awareness.
