PLATFORM CHINA Contemporary Art Institute is honored to announce the solo exhibition of Qi Wenzhang, featuring the newest paintings of the artist. The exhibition will be on view from 12, August to 17, September.

Absurdity and Fantasy, local colorism and undornated style, reality and realism, the modernity process of painting and the interaction with the history of painting always consist in Qi Wenzhang’s works, constructing his unique visual narrative and theory of painting.

However, throughout the history of painting, Qi Wenzhang found that the core of painting lay beyond all these. The core of painting may not dwell in theme, style or concept but somewhere between pigment and form, somewhere still left untouched. This is just the motivation of his painting. He takes the intrinsic nature of painting as his heading, sailing in the stormy reality.

Qi Wenzhang was born in Shandong Province, China in 1968.
