Did You Know?

A co-founder of the Amphibism art movement of the early 1990s, water is a primary theme in Chen's work.


Chen Qi's works often show a single object up close. Here an open lotus flower set against a black ink ground evokes the image of a blossom merged into and reflecting the bright moonlight. At close view, the bulging petals defined by crisp printed lines show fine veins in relief, embossed into the paper and achieved through a blind impressed wooden block that has no ink.

Chen Qi has been awarded many prizes for his art on a national and international level, including a gold medal at the 13th National Print Exhibition in 1996 in Beijing. He has exhibited in Europe and Asia, including Paris, Geneva, Kuala Lumpur, and New Delhi.
