Snow Yunxue Fu is a new media artist and an Assistant Arts Professor at Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. She holds an MFA in Studio Art and BFA in Painting from the Film, Video, New Media, and Animation (FVNMA) department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), a BFA in Painting from Southeast Missouri State University, and a BA in Fine Arts from Sichuan Normal University in China.
