Hina Cao (Yu Cao) is an NYC-based artist and fashion model with a passion for divine femininity: beauty, sensuality, sexuality, divinity, love, and pleasure.
Art is Hina's expression of love. Drawing and writing poems give Hina the most joy in a spiritual way. It is a direct expression of her heart and connects her with divinity. When she feels touched, she draws. She is open and quiet, being taken for an adventure by the spirit until it expresses itself in precision. This is how her impromptu one-line drawings, colorful abstract drawings, and paired drawings & poems are born. Hina's art captures the beauty of daily life: people, animals, flowers, clouds, fruits, emotions, and all that she loves.
She is the author of the book "All That I love/ DrawingPoems." She was a finalist in the 4th Juried Annual International Exhibition "Show Your World" in 2018.
She graduated from RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) with a Master of Architecture in 2017.
