Meet the Artist
Loschue (Chue) Lo, is from Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He discovered his passion for art at an early age. Throughout years of schooling, he has explored and experimented with a wide variety of mediums, including photography, ceramics, woodworking, printmaking, drawing, painting, and most recently, murals. Currently attending the University of Wisconsin Green Bay, Chue is a Studio Artist focusing on oil painting. His main body of work expresses the complex relationship between racial and sexual identities as a Queer, Hmong person.
Chue is the muralist behind Green Bay's first LGBTQ+ Mural, located on Napalese Lounge and Grille. Learn more about the mural unveiling here, and check out this video about the mural!
His current approach explores today’s social issues with conceptual designs of what painting could mean to himself as well as to his audience. A recent example of his painting, The Bride and Her Mother, focuses on being a first-generation, Hmong-American bride. This painting also addresses the common struggle of gender roles/expectations while also capturing the intimacy of a Hmong wedding.
Lo is expected to graduate in December of 2021 with a Bachelor of Arts degree and he plans on pursuing his Master of Fine Arts to further his knowledge and skills of painting. He hopes to continue exploring and experimenting with painting and other mediums as a means of addressing social and political topics.
