Bio

Davy Liu’s passion for his work was instilled in him from the very beginning. As a child, he loved to use pencil and pastel on paper to capture things he took visually. Davy’s family immigrated to the United States from Taiwan when he was thirteen, and he sought refuge in his natural talent – art – as he struggled to adapt to the new culture and language. After graduating from Ringling School of Arts and Design in Florida, Davy became a Disney animator and worked on such films as Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Mulan and The Lion King.
劉大偉從小就對藝術充滿了熱情.小時候大偉喜歡用鉛筆或蠟筆在習作簿上面塗鴉,把看到的世界用線條與顏色來呈現.大偉十三歲的時候跟隨著父母家人移民到美國.那時候對藝術創作的天賦剛好成為他在學校遇到語言.文化還有學業困頓的避難所.大偉從佛羅里達Ringling School 藝術設計學院畢業後,加入迪士尼大團隊,成為迪士尼的動畫師,參與製作的動畫有美女與野獸,阿拉丁,花木蘭和獅子王等等.
One can see this peace and joy in Davy’s own heart come through noticeably in his artwork. Davy loves being able to put what is on his mind into his art. He sees painting as the inner core and essence of his artistic being. “I want to paint well and do it over and over again,” Davy adds. “I hope that my work will have everlasting value rather than being fashionable or quickly forgotten. Good art should make you want to look at it over and over again as it becomes more beautiful. I hope I can touch people’s lives personally or professionally.”
從大偉的作品中我們可以看到他內心的平安與喜樂.大偉喜歡把內心深處的感覺用纖細的筆觸來展現,把創作看成生命的另一種延續.”我想把作品用感動來呈現,一遍又一遍的畫畫讓我開心.”大偉說.”與其作些時尚流行的熱門作品,我寧願讓我的作品有著細水長流的生命價值.好的藝術創作會讓人想一看再看,從每次的專注中發現更多的美麗與感動.我希望我的作品不管在生活上或專業上都可以觸動人心”.
Davy founded Kendu Films in 2004. Currently, he is working on a series of animation and picture books call the “Invisible Tails” series (kendufilms.com), retelling historical stories in a brand new perspective.

but rather be a man of value
