Hou Qing

Chinese, b. 1969

BACK

Hou Qing integrates Western and Chinese culture in his paintings under the influences of traditional Confucianism and Taoism. The “figure” theme began after his “lotus” theme when Hou wanted to create portraits that created eroticism through the beauty of women. Hou sees his work as an atmosphere from the woman's state or living condi­tion, expressing people's feelings for desire especially during the country's past revolutions and history.  

Had a major sell-out solo exhibition at Jas­mine Fine Arts in Singapore and at Art Fu­tures Group in 2013. 

Had an important solo exhibition "The Peony Pavilion" at Today's Art Museum, Beijing in May 2013. 

Has held over 9 solo exhibitions and 10 group exhibitions internationally such as Jakarta, Singapore, Taiwan, etc. 

Has an auction record of US$4,107.6 set at Poly International Auction house in Bei­jing in 2010.
