Wang Qiang’s painting skills were honed through abstraction and minimalism. He rationally constructs modern artistic notions with a unique individual style. In his works the colors of real life are brightened and purified, compressed and simplified. An credible sense of live, on-the-spot presence and a refreshing sense of transparence inject an incredible flow of air into the picture, demonstrating a sensory experience that’s even more bewildering than the past or the future.
Wang Qiang (b. 1971, Beijing, China) received his BFA from the Printmaking Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in 1997. In 2004, he obtained his Master’s degree (i.e. Meisterschüler) at the Düsseldorf Academy of Fine Arts.
