Karlie Wu

A wee dram of the Scots; a glimmer of China; a peppering of England – this is the essence that emerging artist Karlie Wu portrays in her work as she navigates her own cultural identity.

Working predominantly in oils on canvas, Wu’s style reflects a classic Renoir-esque technique as she layers oils to create studies filled with depth, drama, and emotion. However, the subject of Wu’s work does not mirror Renoir’s quite so closely; with a tendency to focus on urban narratives such as: a dad at a supermarket, a pair of trainers, or a man texting on a mobile phone whilst sat atop a fire hydrant. Wu recreates urban areas from her upbringing to astonishing effect, using a classical art style to make potentially ‘throw away moments,’ appear superbly special. 

A wonderful new artist, finding delight in the everyday…
