Qing Qi

Finding inspiration from traditional Chinese Art, I focus on works of art that explore the complex relationship between culturally specific issues and larger developments of a modern/post-modern age. Within this context, I am trying appropriating and transforming both conventional Chinese aesthetic idioms and contemporary Western vocabularies to negotiate the cultural differences between past and present, self and other." A recent London Metropolitan University MA Graduate in Art, Design and Visual Culture, I won the Excellent Designer of Fashion Awards in 1999, China, The Copper Award of Industry and Design in 2000, and obtained a distinction for my degree in 2002, Masters Degree in London in 2006.
