Qing Qi, Chinese/UK artist

Qing Qi was born in China and lives and works in London.  She is one of Britain-China’s best up-and-coming artists (London Evening Standard) and her work has been featured in several exhibitions and shows across the UK.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Finding inspiration from traditional Chinese Art, I focus on works of art that explore the complex relationship between culturally specific issues and larger developments of a modern/post-modern age.

Within this context, I am appropriating and transforming both conventional Chinese aesthetic idioms and contemporary Western vocabularies to negotiate the cultural differences between past and present, self and other.
