Born in Jilin, China, in 1981, Jiang Miao is a diverse artist specializing in contemporary Woodblock Printmaking. She studied at the Printmaking Department in the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, China. There she earned her B.F. A. in 2005 and M.F.A. in 2009 with a major in Woodblock Printmaking. An award-winning artist, Jiang Miao expresses her personal experiences as a female artist in Beijing. Jiang Mao prefers this black-and-white woodcut method because of her observation of surrounding people and objects, her deep understanding of the complex and difficult communication problems that arise between self and others, and the use of the cutting lines to match the psychological movements of the mind. Her works were chosen for a joint exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Macau. Widely exhibited, her works have also been shown alongside many renowned Chinese artists such as Xu Baozhong, Xu Bing, Zhou Danmei and Zhuang Hui.
