ABOUT DAISHI LUO

Daishi Luo, an interdisciplinary artist, graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute with a master’s degree in industrial design in 2016. At the same time, she studied metalworking art at Taiwan Huafan University. Based on her background in industrial design, Daishi is keen on exploring "biological art" from matter. Through conducting material research, studying biology, and taking copper as a medium, she develops works that are grown in nature.

 

Daishi explores the possibilities of growing creations by nurturing them in the same way that plants are cultivated, and calls her approach "Deliberately losing control in control".  She integrates contemporary science, designs material behavior, and allows copper to spontaneously develop colors and textures under control, creating what "it" wants to be. In terms of conceptual output, she is good at combining video, installation, sculpture, painting, functionality, and material research, building the relationship between matter and people, blurring the boundaries of fields, and discussing the logic of natural growth.

 

Her research and creation has been awarded the 2017-2018 China National Art Foundation, 2019 Shenzhen Creative Foundation, and in 2020 she founded china's first copper color library, COPPERCOLORS. Her works have also been published in leading exhibitions, galleries, professional media and awards at home and abroad, and have been collected by Dior, Luo Zhongli Art Museum, Wujie Art Museum, Daikin and other institutions. She was an invited artist fort Dior AS SEEN BY 2021.
