Xia Cospito-Liu

Xia Cospito-Liu is a Chinese-American visual artist based out of New York City who works primarily in with photography, digital media, and collage. Inspired by trans-futurism, racialized tech fetishism, spirituality, and queer identity and politics, they tell dynamic stories through single frames. Their work intimately invokes the feelings of alienness, of diaspora, of disassociation, while dealing with issues of race, gender, and sexuality. Approaching portraiture as a radical form of media, they give power to their participants to dictate how they want to be seen--as they are. Their work has been featured by Refinery29, Adolescent Content, Polyester Zine, Sukeban Magazine, CR Men's Book, Subvrt Magazine, among others.
