Jesse Zuo is a Chinese New York-based figurative painter. She earned her BFA and MFA from the School of Visual Arts, forming the foundation for a deep commitment to being a fine artist.

Her art delves into the exploration of womanhood, the sensory experience of our bodies, and the tumultuous journey of emotions. Jesse adheres to the roots of traditional realism, yet injects a modern twist with chromatic colors, providing the audience with greater freedom to interpret the time and place of the depicted moments.

Her artistic expressions can be likened to a personal diary, a reflection of life as a young woman navigating the complexities of a foreign environment. The canvas serves as a capturing medium for the highs and lows, the challenges and triumphs of her journey.
