Biography

Currently living and working in Vancouver, Simone Guo was born in China to an artist’s family and practiced Chinese brush painting in childhood.  She studied at Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, China where she completed a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Art History, and in 2004, earned another Master of Art History degree from the University of Victoria.  She has had a number of solo exhibitions and has participated in many group exhibitions in North America and Asia, and her work is represented by Art Beatus Gallery and VisualSpace Gallery in Vancouver, BC.


Guo's recent body of work in oil and acrylic continues to explore unique vocabulary to visually interpret her understanding of nature and land, presenting a poetic yet stylized landscape world that reflects on personal history and memories, communal sentiments, even a much broader cultural reference.
