Qiu Xiaofei Biography

Qiu Xiaofei's artistic practice includes oil painting, watercolor, drawing, sculpture and installation. The concept of his work engages relationships between personal experience and history. Recently, his work focuses on the psychological state during the creative process. Qiu Xiaofei’s artworks evoke a dreamlike state. Many of his paintings are based on photos from his childhood. His current multi-disciplinary work combines drawings with sculptures and act as a chronological recorder of the artists’ history. As he explores various parts of his memory or “thought diversions” as Qiu Xiaofei calls them, they allow him to delve deeper into his “procedural, subconscious and personal experiences.”
