About Karlie Wu 胡嘉瑤

Karlie Wu 胡嘉瑤 is an artist based in Glasgow, exploring themes of nostalgia and cultural identity. Wu’s interest stems from her relatives’ reminisces on their native Hong Kong. This has led her to investigate the complexities of being British/Scottish and Hakka Chinese. its expectations and misconceptions, and the reality of this lived experience. 

Paintings and drawings evoke consideration of, and gives prominence to spaces and scenes that are often dismissed as banal, traditional, or literally abandoned.

Wu is also one of the six founding members of besea.n (Britain’s East and South East Asian Network), a non-profit, anti-racism grassroots organisation that tackles negative stereotypes and advocates positive media representation of ESEA people in the UK.
