Chengxiang Qi Biography

(Chinese, b. 1952)

Chengxiang Qi’s painting reveals the influence of the Dutch School of Art and the virtuosity of the Italian Renaissance. Every innovative original reflects a sensitivity to light combined with saturated color, within a poetically excellent composition. His refined and elegant style characterizes compelling portraits of modest young omen in traditional Chinese attire, their youth and quiet innocence captured on the canvas for eternity.

Mr Qi’s devotion to his work has been untiring. After graduating from the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts in 1977, he completed his master’s degree at the prestigious Central Academy of Fine Art, Beijing in 1987. While attending the Central Academy’s research department, Qi mastered many different styles and techniques, exploring a wide range of venues, from impressionism to realism. He is an exciting and classical contributor to the world of art.

In 2001, Qi immigrated to the US and started the “Candlelight Sequence” series. He has been featured in a number of gallery exhibitions. The Chinese government has presented him with numerous awards, including the Gold award in the prestigious 8th National Exhibition. He has been received in Germany, France, Holland and Spain for solo exhibitions.
