Jason Phu's work explores his cultural upbringing in a Chinese/Vietnamese household with Buddhist, Daoist and traditional Chinese culture while growing up in Australia. His conceptual interests include diasporic culture & history of Chinese Australians, Daoist religious practices, Buddhist temples, Chinese Folk Tales, Orientalist attitudes towards Asiatic religions and the 'New Ink' movement (contemporary Chinese Painting and Calligraphy) in China.
Jason Phu studied at COFA (Sydney), graduating with honours in 2011, and NSCAD (Nova Scotia), and has also done residencies at CAFA (Beijing), DAC Studio (Chongqing), CAP Studio (Chiang Mai) and Organhaus (Chongqing). Jason has had numerous solo exhibitions across Australia including at Nicholas Projects (Melbourne), CCAS Gorman Arts Centre (Canberra), Alaska Projects William St (Sydney) and Ray Hughes Gallery (Sydney) where he was formerly represented. He won the Sulman Prize and received a Freedman Foundation Travelling Scholarship in 2015, which has allowed him to base his practise in China and Australia. In 2017 he was shortlisted for the Ramsey Art Prize and will be one of the curated artists of Underbelly Arts Festival 2017.
