Hou Qing


Artist Biography

Hou Qing (b. 1969, China) is a celebrated Chinese contemporary artist who is based in Beijing.

Hou Qing paints realistic portraits of models that emphasize on their femininity. His works focus on the changing face of women in China, from traditionally opera-dressed women to modern Chinese women dressed in western clothing. He also started painting images of the lotus and bamboo since 1994. This series closely relates to his childhood in an oriental and typical ancient Chinese setting.

Hou’s influence comes from the “85 New Wave (1985-89)” where China offered opportunities to learn and imitate Western modern art. He has held exhibitions in China, Taiwan, Singapore, and Taiwan over the years.
