Jonathan Liu (b. 1993, Singapore) is an artist working primarily with print-based darkroom processes within his practice. He is interested in the narratives formed through text and images. Drawing from his fascination with narratives and the relationship between the artist and the poet, his recent works attempt to mirror our reality through the use of the landscape. His work deals with concepts such as romantic escapism, memory, post-memory and the search for the layers in-between. He graduated from London College of Communication in 2018 with a First-Class Honours Degree in Photography.
