About the Artist

Qin Feng is one of the most important names in the Chinese avant-garde movement. In the early 1980s, he studied mural painting at the Shandong University of Art and Design. It was at tthis time that he experimented with imported styles of contemporary art. While teaching at the Berlin University of art in the late 1990s, he further explored combining  Modernism and the ink painting tradition resulting in a style that is similar to Abstract Expressionism with an emphasis on movement and spontaneity.

The work we own is similar to his installation in the courtyard of the monastery of San Giorgio Maggiore for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale.

His works are collected by The British Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Museum of Fine Arts and The Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Boston, Yale University Art Gallery, Smith College Museum of Art, The Ford Foundation, The National Arts Foundation (France), The U.S. State Department (“Art in Embassies”).
