Revolution is a word that strikes a chord with Qin Feng - it is a resounding part of his family’s history. Qin Feng is inspired by the rebellious ink artist Bada Shanren and, like his source of inspiration, faced his own hurdles of backlash and cultural rigidity. In the midst of his rising career, his ability to reside in his home country was compromised and he chose to move to the United States where he continued, with renewed fervour, to pursue his artistic expression. Armed with the sensibilities of Chinese ink and exposure to German Expressionism from his time spent in Berlin, Qin Feng rose to prominence with his transformative work that crossed boundaries of countries, language and culture - encapsulating society, desires and states of being with lyrical swipes and strokes of ink. Unconstrained by what had traditionally been done, the artist worked with paper, cloth, ceramics, installations, acrylics and even creating his own inks, brushes and paper in his experimental pursuits. Drawing widespread attention and acclaim, he has risen to be amongst the highest-regarded names in contemporary ink art.
