Qin Feng: West Wind East Water
Qin Feng was born in Xinjiang in the far reaches of China’s northwest territory where the intersection of the Silk Roads brought many cultures together and would influence his art for years to come. It is the subject of cultural differences that weaves its way through his work as he constantly explores how symbols and language can be used by artists to communicate universal ideas. He is continually researching and experimenting with new approaches to contemporary ink painting that result in works that speak the language of diverse cultures within a personal symbolic lexicon.
Even with oil painting, acrylic painting and Western mixed media techniques, he still uses Eastern elements to show off the expression of ink painting.
