I wonder how many red-haired artists China has. Maybe it is more common than I think. At the very least, there is a writer, also from Taiwan, who had red hair. Victoria (Yung-Chih) Lu was born in Taipei and studied painting at age six. At nine, she enrolled in night classes at University and was described by newspapers as the “youngest college student”. At 19, she went to study in Belgium and in ’73 she went to the United States where she became involved in the Women’s Liberation Movement. Concurrently, she moved away from traditional painting and became a more radical figure in the art world. This month, she had a show at the Today Art Museum in Beijing.
