Shan Shui Australis

Featured artist Dapeng Liu

Shan Shui Australis is the first solo exhibition of Beijing-born and Sydney-based artist Liu Dapeng (b. 1982). Shan Shui “山水” refers to mountains and waters as well as to the traditional Chinese brush and ink landscape paintings. Dapeng explores the fusion of the East and the West and the old and the new. These works are preoccupied with the notion that time is not linear or fixed, but is constantly in flux. Born in Beijing, DapengLiu discovered his fascination with painting and drawing at the ripe young age of four when he began being mentored by his father. He pays homage in his work both to his Chinese heritage and his relationship to Australia and its landscape.

Dapeng’s recent achievements include:
2017  Finalist, Mosman Art Prize
2015  Finalist, Sir John Sulman Prize
2014  Finalist, Archibald Prize, one of the six paintings in the judges’ final shortlist.

Dapeng has lived and worked in Sydney since 2007.
