Wang Qian (1982-Present) View Works

Born in Laiwu City, Shandong province, Wang Qian attended the China Academy of Art. Focusing on Bird and Flower imagery, Wang finds harmony between two opposing styles: gongbi (meticulous) and meigu (boneless). In meticulous painting, every detail is defined with high precision. Boasting elegant color and emphasizing line quality, this style tends to be more descriptive than interpretive. In contrast, boneless painting refers to a style devoid of line that delineates form by careful tonal variation. Through the striking union of these styles, Wang renders traditional subjects and styles in a distinctly contemporary context. Wang Qian currently lives and works in Suzhou.
