Born in Taipei, Taiwan. He graduated from Chinese Culture University in 1980 and was one of the founding members of the "Taipei Painting Association." The style he has changed from irony to black humor. In the late 1980s, Wu started to create the "Trauma?series that reflected the social issues of concern. All the elements in the painting are scars and violence, implying the age at that time. In 1990s, Wu employed image into his creation. In addtion to photography, he also pays special heed to the frame and material used. He often used artificial flower, sequins, velvet, cord and leather, imitating the "Salon photography" which was popular in Taiwan in the 1950s. These techniques and materials present the main theme of the works of this period, "Pretence."In recent years, he participated in the Venice Biennale and that of Fukuoka Asian Art Museum in Japan and became a well-known figure.
