Oscar yi Hou is an artist and writer based in New York. He was born and raised in Liverpool, England. He received his B.A in Visual Art from Columbia University. He has also studied at the L’École des Arts de la Sorbonne. His work is anchored in personhood, pulling together a syncretic field of iconography that describes complex layers of identity and relation.

In 2021 he presented A sky-licker relation and A dozen poem-pictures at James Fuentes, New York and JamesFuentes.Online, respectively. His work has also been included in exhibitions at the Royal Academy, UK; Asia Society, New York; T293 Gallery, Rome, Italy; Kohn Gallery, Los Angeles; and Sprüth Magers Online.
