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.

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.”
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.
