Fair Director’s Pick for the Week of December 17
ChiKa Wu is a Taiwanese artist, based in Taipei, whose works combine themes of nature and East Asian patterns with the bright colors and stylistic motifs of contemporary pop culture. Often set on a silver or gold ground, her figures are inspired by what she sees in nature: flowers, animals, rivers, greenery. Rendered in her unique style, her blue bodies of water and green vines reference traditional painting composition while bringing to mind the highly stylized aesthetic of video game landscapes.

As Nicole forms her recommendations, she is considering key aspects of an artist’s work that demand special recognition—whether it be a fully articulated style that is unique and arresting, a mastery of technical skill that reveals an uncommon talent, or a strong underpinning of ideas that is fresh and provocative. It is our hope this this series will help you discover an artist whose works you really love.
