Siyu Qu was born in China. She is a graphic designer and illustrator currently based in London. Before she pursued her passion for visual art, Siyu had trained as a textile designer for seven years and got an MFA in textile design from Zhengjiang Sci-tech University in 2018.
She is passionate about finding the spark in stories from the quotidian and trivial in life. Her work is diverse in form, not affiliated with a single discipline, but only serving the content. Sketching, collage and moving image are the forms of expression she currently practices. Recently she has started to enjoy and experiment with manga style narrative. Through her art practice she hopes to uncover her innermost self and to build bridges with her audience.
