Model Lucy Liu and painter Yu Ling

Lucy Liu
December 2, 1968, Jackson Heights, New York City, New York, United States

Liu had previously presented her artwork under a pseudonym, Yu Ling.

Yu, who is an artist in several media, has had several gallery shows showcasing her collage, paintings and photography.

She began doing collage mixed media when she was 16 years old, and became a photographer and painter. Yu attended the New York Studio School to study drawing, painting, and sculpture from 2004 to 2006.

In September 2006, Yu held an art show and donated her share of the profits to UNICEF. She also had another show in 2008 in Munich. Her painting "Escape", was incorporated into Montblanc's Cutting Edge Art Collection and was shown during Art Basel Miami 2008, which showed works by contemporary American artists. Yu has stated that she donated her share of the profits from the NYC Milk Gallery gallery show to UNICEF. In London, a portion of the proceeds from her book Seventy Two went to UNICEF.

Yu has always been an artist, she explains. Even while she was shooting movies, she would be drawing or sewing in her trailer. But some years ago, she scratched her art itch more seriously by moving back to New York, buying a live-in studio, and enrolling at the New York Studio School :

I realised it was something I needed to do. It was important for me to go in that direction for my own sanity. So I went for the summer and I just realised, ''Oh my God. There's so much here that I need to explore."

Self-portrait ?

Kama Sutra ?

Old chinese style

Lucy Liu is also a model who knows the photography she practices. 

She choosed her photographers after, without any doubt, watching their work and admiring it. However, she could have been better for the series of Michel Comte with my famous friend Nikola Borissov, his 14 articles and his interview.

I was dreaming ! Lucy is beautiful and I like these photographs, because if I publish them it's because I like them, of course.
