Drawings by Qiu JieJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 17 Sep 2013
Qiu Jie trained both in Chinese high-realism and European multi-media schools, also working professionally as a decorator and designer. His drawings are informed from a wide range of aesthetic influences and carry a sense of myth making, exotica, and expedition through mysterious terrains of the imagination.
"Executed in massive scale, and taking months to complete, Qiu's pencil drawings are achievements of awesome endeavour. His painstaking process is canonised in the timeless quality of his images, which merge the styles and iconography of ancient Chinese art with traditional and contemporary Western imagery and references." - Saatchi
