Miao Liu (b. 1998, Qingdao) is an emerging visual artist interested in the movement of poetry, frailty, trauma, and affect through bodies and environments.

Formally trained in textile and ceramics, Miao approaches form with a craft sensibility
that seeks out the metaphoric potential of material. She is interested in the convergence
of the personal, historical, and collective in a contemporary project of de-colonial and feminist meaning making.

Available for local projects, sales, and potential employment opportunities.
