Jawshing Arthur Liou (劉肇興; born June 13, 1968) is a digital artist whose work depicts spaces not probable in reality. Working with both lens-based representation and digital post-production, he aims to transform recognizable imagery into realms of transcendent and otherworldly experience.
Liou was born in Zhongli District, Taoyuan. He completed a BA in journalism at National Chengchi University in Taipei, Taiwan in 1990, and worked as a video journalist in Taiwan in the early 1990s before emigrating to the United States at age 25. He enrolled in graduate school and received an MFA in Photography and Electronic Intermedia from the University of Florida, Gainesville in 1998. While in Florida, Liou studied photography with the world-renowned Jerry Uelsmann. During this time Liou’s work became more personal and organic, and his practice expanded to incorporate video.
