About

I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which I live and practice and pay my respect to Elders - past, present and emerging - and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within my community.


Yin Lu is a 23-year-old Chinese Australian artist based in Brisbane, Australia whose practice is influenced by her Chinese heritage and East Asian arts. Working across a range of two dimensional media, from drawing, painting, mixed media and muralism, her work creatively examines the combination of Western art and Eastern aesthetics, Chinese mythology and multiculturalism. Her artworks are intended to amplify her cultural identity and inner voice, and to spread the Chinese culture through bold and contrasting artistic style.

Welcome to my world...

I consider myself as an artwork made of Chinese and Australian elements. A cross and mix between distant territories with different hues. An anomaly to culture and a product of freedom. My Australian roots gave me the liberty to express myself. Growing up with freedom allowed me to be curious. I yearned for the other half of my identity. My skin colour has a shade of yellow and it is a constant reminder of what else I am made of. I hungered for the yin to my yang.


I discovered who I am by expressing it through art. My Chinese heritage is rich in tradition. It has a lot of representation. A lot of symbolism. I was reconnected to nature: the flowers, the rivers and many of earth’s existential wonders. I stepped back in time and I was opened to a soulful discovery. China’s silence, Zen and natural beauty is a refreshing contrast to today’s fast-paced and high-tech lifestyle.


My art represents my peculiarity. The opposing nature of my mixed races are shown by the contrasting pieces and colours using ink and acrylic. My passion to rekindle my Chinese heritage inspires my work. While the liberty to express by painting nude bodies is in respect to my unbound Australian upbringing. My story is reflected in my art. My work, as well as myself, combines tradition and freedom.
