Beihua Guo was born in Shanghai, China in 1998. He is a Los Angeles based artist and an undergraduate student at Pitzer College, whose work was featured in group exhibitions at Parsons School of Design, Somerset House, and Zaragoza Museum, etc. He also received national and international awards in Hasselblad Masters, Sony World Photography Awards, Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, and International Photography Awards, etc. In addition, he was selected as the Artist-in-Residence in Petrified Forest National Park and Lassen Volcanic National Park.
Growing up in a densely populated urban environment, Beihua had never experienced the sublime nature in his childhood. His love of the outdoors and landscape photography started to emerge when he moved to the United States in 2013, as he is interested in seeking geometric patterns and vibrant color in public lands. Majoring in studio art and environmental analysis, his work also uses interdisciplinary techniques to address the themes of urban sprawl, environmental racism, and changing landscapes of the American West; he strives to use photography to document environmental problems and initiate social changes.
