Fay Ku Taiwan

Born 1974, Taipei, Taiwan
Lives and works in Brooklyn, New York

Karin Weber Gallery contemporary artist Fay Ku is recognized for her fantastical artworks in graphite, acrylic, oil and gouache on layered drafting film. Ku works quickly, channeling a menagerie of influences inspired by travel, radio, film, literature and casual observation. Her artworks suggest the fluidity of identity and challenge the sexual, cultural, personal and political identifiers that have come to define and categorize individuals in greater society.
