artist presentation

Killion Huang currently lives and works in his native China, after having earned his BFA from the New York School of Visual Arts in 2022. Inspired by Old Masters like Matisse, Bonnard, and Jamie Wyeth, as well as contemporary figures TM Davy, Louis Fratino, and Oscar Yi Hou, Huang's figurative paintings reflect his experience as a queer artist in New York City. His intimate portrayals capture everyday moments within the LGBTQ+ community, offering a glimpse into his journey from a conservative Chinese background. Huang's artistic practice seeks to amplify the under-represented queer community and culture globally, emphasizing the importance of community in the context of queer identity and giving voice to the marginalized.
