She graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing (2014) and she spent some time at the Sorbonne before integrating the illustration atelier from the Haute École des Arts du Rhin in Strasbourg, (graduated in 2020).

Shuo Hao's works present bodies in metamorphosis, human and non-human, caught in tumultuous relationships. Between Western and Eastern culture, she confronts the different meanings of symbols, linking in the same gesture Michelangelo's bas-reliefs and Asian objects carved in jade stone, Christian martyrs and figures from Greek mythology. The soft colors of the different mediums (vaporous pastels, oil on wood or canvas) deepen the contrast with the strangeness of the scenes representing animals entangled in each other, or the violence inflicted on the bodies of women coldly represented. Shuo Hao's painting is fully embodied and nourished by this double influence, taking a step aside from the traditional representations of myths in Western iconography.

Her recent exhibitions include: ‘‘Voyager I’’, Hive Center for Contemporary Art, Shanghai (2023); ‘‘Mes mensonges sont aussi les vôtres, Volet 1’’, Fondation FIMINCO, Romainville (2023); ‘‘Mes mensonges sont aussi les vôtres, Volet 2’’, Réserves du Frac Île de France, Romainville (2023); ''L’Amour, La Mer, Les Femmes'', Design Parade 2023, Ancien Évêché, Toulon (2023); ''Love me Tender'' (solo), Galerie Derouillon, Paris (2023); "The Rings of Saturn", Galerie Derouillon, Paris (2023); “72e Festival Jeune Création”, Fondation Fiminco, Romainville (2022); “Hot Blood, Cold Blood” (solo), Galerie Derouillon, Paris (2022); “Ce vice impuni, la lecture”, La chaufferie, Strasbourg (2018); “China Meets Norway in a Bookshelf”, Beijing (2017).
