Helen Zhu is a Chinese Australian artist who lives and creates work on Dharawal land. Helen received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the National Art School Sydney in 2022. Zhu’s practice integrates the Western aesthetic of abstract expressionism with elements of traditional Chinese calligraphy, exploring how the dialogue between colour and gesture can manifest into evocative emotions. 小宝 (Xiǎo bǎo); meaning little treasure, explores Zhu’s relationship with her cultural background and personal journey of self-acceptance and discovery.
