Ciel Liu launched her career as a reporter for Mandarin-language TV channels in her native Singapore.
After earning an MA in Photography and Electronic Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London, she began working on a freelance basis, travelling widely to create content for TV channels and clients in various countries.
At present, she is strongly focused on video projects aimed at raising awareness internationally of Japanese traditional culture and crafts. She is also engaged in an ongoing project documenting Outsider artists in Cuba.
In all of her work, Ciel Liu aims for the intersection between social discourse and art. Her ambition is to raise questions and inspire thought about what it means to be human in our increasingly complex societies.
