Q. X. WANG (庆祥 - 泽人) 

Q. X. WANG received his master’s degree from Henan University, China, and his PhD from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in the United States.  He is a contemporary artist residing in New York City, with studios in NYC and Beijing, Wang divides his time between these two cities.  In his art, he “endeavors to employ the best traditional brushwork to explore the newest concepts.”  (Q.X. Wang: “Remarks on Art”)  As a result, he is able to manipulate the most refined techniques for the expression of contemporary concepts.  In accordance with his philosophy, “Difference means art; great difference means great art; no difference means non-art,” Wang persistently pursues reformation and a personal style. 

Art critic XU Encun, Editor-in-Chief of Art in China, notes that Q.X. Wang is, in art history, a representative figure of those who probe into the essence of art for reformation.  He calls attention to the fact that Q. X. Wang has achieved an epoch-making breakthrough by creating a style which is personal, unique, and outstanding at the same time.  Art critic LIU Xilin believes that “Q. X. Wang, by establishing his enlightened and original style, has enriched and developed Chinese culture.”  XIE Chunyan, a Shanghai-based art critic, remarks “Q. X. Wang has cultivated a new aesthetic tendency by drawing from the West to merge into the traditional, and by transforming the plain into the splendid.” 

Professor SHUI Tianzhong, in a panel discussion on Chinese contemporary art, concluded: “Q. X. Wang’s art manifests his own way of looking at the world and his own way of life.” 

Professor Gerald Haggerty calls attention to the role of childhood in the creation of Q. X. Wang’s art, noting the “variegated motifs are all tributaries that spring from a single source, the wellspring of inspiration”—or what Charles Baudelaire defined as genius: “the ability to recapture childhood at will.

New York-based art critic Dominique Nahas maintains that Q. X. Wang “has successfully developed an art form that can straddle not only various traditions but also art forms.”  In recent years, Q. X. Wang has exhibited internationally in renowned museums and galleries such as: the National Art Museum of China, Beijing; the Shanghai Art Museum; the World Journal Art Gallery; and the New Art Center, New York.

Q. X. Wang lectures on art at Harvard University, St. John's University, College of William and Mary, Central Academy of Fine Art, China Art Research Institute, Beijing, and Qinghua University.  His works have been collected internationally.
