Bio:

Tsungwei Moo was born in Taipei, Taiwan. She received her degree in Mass Communication from Tamkang University, earning one of three top honors in all of Taiwan. She was formerly employed as an advertising art director in Taipei. Upon emigrating to California, Tsungwei, a lifelong artist, decided to dedicate herself to art. She continued her fine art education at CCSF and Laney Colleges in the Bay Area. She has produced a significant body of work in many mediums including ceramics and printmaking, as well as painting. Her art is an expression of her passionate observation of the wonders of nature and humanity.

She has been granted awards and exhibitions from the DeYoung Museum, YBCA, SF Woman Artists, and the San Francisco Public Library.  She is an artist in residence at Yosemite National Park, an art instructor of the Yosemite Conservancy, where she teaches pastel drawing for the past 8 years. She won San Francisco Muni Art 2018 and her art was on 20 buses drove around in San Francisco. In 2019, her designed aircraft had won United Airlines “Her Art Here” contest and painted on a Boeing 757 airplane to represent California.

Her work reveals her direct observation of life, informed by her hard-earned technical virtuosity, her professional background, her many travels around the world, and her passion for the shared experience of humanity.  

Statement:

I have always believed in the power of art to inspire change. My art is my conviction that creation is stronger than the destructive, false ideals that threaten our society. My art expresses my conviction that culture is not a barrier, but a door to our common humanity. There are common experiences that all humans share and can learn from.  Art has the ability to transcend language barriers and cultural divides.

Through the act of creation, I imbue meaningful found materials with a new spirit that shows my reverence for every individual, to the traditions and environment which shapes them. I honor and celebrate life.
