About the Art

This painting has a simple muted background style but incorporates a lot of detail in the foreground subject of the artwork. This is a style of Chinese artwork that has been around for thousands of years.

This artwork is completely hand-painted, and is mounted to a handmade silk wall scroll in our workshop.

About the Artist:

The artist's name is WangjianQiu (Wang Jian-Qiu). He lives in Jinan, the capital city of Shandong Province in Northern China (about 5 hours south of Beijing). I was introduced to this artist's work at Qin Xia's studio in Jinan. This artist has been a long time friend of Qin Xia (You may recognize Qin Xia's name from artwork in our flowers and birds category). Wang Jian-Qiu also does some great detailed beautiful woman paintings, and occasionally does some landscapes for us as well.
