Peter Q Artist Bio:

Peter Q, also known as Huajin Qiu, initially established himself on the British Art scene in the 2000s. His fascination lies with fusing together elements of Chinese calligraphy, the Abstract and Post-impressionism. He has created a new painting approach called ‘art-body autopsy’ in which Chinese Calligraphic Characters are painted in strong black acrylic as a structural foundation for his paintings. He defines this as the ‘bone and soul’ of the artwork body. Carefully composited colours fill the gaps between the characters and strokes of the characters, whilst diverse stroke techniques are used to complete the rest of the painting. He describes the colours composited in this step as the ‘flesh and skin’ of the artwork body. His paintings talk, move, think and act. Some are filled with strokes that can be linked together and form words, other are made of rhythms and beats which are, of course, transformed into colour filled figures. He painted using a somewhat surprising variety of tools, such as kitchen utensils, gloves, or pieces of wood, etc. His latest works, exhibited in Beijing 798 International Artist Summit Exhibition, continue in the vein of this ‘Art-body Autopsy’ methodology, creating a wild fire that burns away precious heritage sites and beautiful landscapes, but the structural bones of the paintings remain with oracle Chinese characters continuing to provide a foundation for the works. Peter Q describes his vision when creating the works was to make a ‘deadly beautiful’ scene. He fuels the flames with oracle Chinese characters and freezes the fire at the very moment when all these beautiful places are in the process of being burnt down. The UK (Lancashire) media appreciated his art, describing it as ‘art of gold’. His artworks have become highly sought after in UK, China and US, doubling in value over the past year.
