Wen Wu studied painting at Tsinghua University Academy of Art, Beijing and London Metropolitan University. Her work has been included in group exhibitions in London, Bristol and Cambridge and in solo exhibitions in London and Manchester.

The portrait is of Daniel, a friend of the artist who has recently completed an MA in art history. He visited Wen Wu’s studio for several sittings for the portrait. She had always been captivated by his green eyes and dark hair and says that she selected this pose, ‘to express his classical beauty’.
