Hung Liu was a Chinese-born American contemporary artist. Lui died on August 7, 2021. One of the first Chinese artists to establish a career in the West, her paintings and prints typically featured layered brushstrokes combined with washes of linseed oil which give the imagery an indistinct and drippy appearance.

Hang Liu was survived by her husband Jeff Kelley, and son, Ling Chen.
