Haixia Liu

by on May 18, 2018

Haixia Liu, Impressionist/Realist, born in China 1962.

Haixia Liu was born to a family of artists in 1962 in Hubei Province, China.  Encouraged and instructed by his father and grandfather, he began to draw at very early age.  He did decorative painting for local businesses at age 12.  Between 1981 and 1983 Liu chose to learn graphic design at the Hubei Industry Institute.  From 1983 to 1987, dreaming to be an artist, he continued to seek his BFA at the Hubei Fine Art Academy in China.

From 1987 to 1999, after obtaining his BFA,  Haixia Liu worked as a graphic designer at the China Packaging Import & Export Corporation.  At the same time Haixia Liu was painting realistic oil paintings.  Liu attended many group and solo shows, and sold his paintings from province-wide to nationwide.

Liu moved to United States in 1999, where he concentrated on painting as an independent artist.  He gradually developed his art style into contemporary impressionistic realism by using the palette knife on canvas.  The emotional impact of his canvases comes from his desire to share the beauty of nature and art, and from the magical use of texture, color and light.  Haixia Liu’s artwork was represented and sold through galleries and exhibitions and featured in magazines in New York.

He moved to reside in Canada in March 2003.  Haixia Liu won the Excellence Award from FCA’s juried show.
