About the artwork
Revolution is a word that strikes a chord with Qin Feng - it is a resounding part of his history. In the midst of his rising career, his ability to reside in his home country was compromised due to backlash and cultural rigidity, and he subsequently chose to move to the United States. Armed with the sensibilities of Chinese ink and exposure to German Expressionism, Qin Feng rose to prominence with his transformative work that crossed boundaries of countries, language and culture with lyrical swipes and strokes of ink. Unconstrained by convention, the artist worked with paper, cloth, ceramics, installations, acrylics and even created 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.
