Jawshing Arthur Liou (b.1968) currently lives and works in Indiana, US. 

Jawshing Arthur Liou works with photography, video, and electronic imaging to create video installations which depict nonexistent spaces often surreal. Using sources ranging from landscapes to oil paint to the human body, much of Liou’s work is related to Buddhist concepts of impermanence, meditations on nature and spirituality, and coping with the illness of his daughter.
