wen wuArtist: Ms Wen Wu

Wen Wu is a London-based painter interested in beauty and constructs of beauty. Wen has spent many years obsessing over the feminine ideal, drawing much inspiration from the classical western oil paintings which she had access to growing up in China.

Wen's artworks are influenced by the work of 17th Century Baroque artists, especially Velasquez, Caravaggio and the Caravaggio School. Wen draws many references from these classical oil paintings.

Wen Wu's portrait "Venus as a Boy" was on show at the National Portrait Gallery's BP Portrait Award 2011 exhibition.

Wen also commits herself to charity work promoting Chinese arts and culture especailly Chinese Painting and Calligraphy.
