Art Works of He Qi

He Qi has been committed to the artistic creation of modern Chinese Christian Art since 1983. He hopes to help change the "foreign image" of Christianity in China by using artistic language, and at the same time, to supplement Chinese Art the way Buddhist art did in ancient times. In his works, He Qi has blended together Chinese folk customs and traditional Chinese painting techniques with the western art of the Middle and Modern Ages, and has created an artistic style of color-on-paper painting.

Dr. He Qi was the first among Mainland Chinese to earn Ph.D. in the Religious art after Cultural Revolution. He wrote his dissertation while studying at Hamburg Art Institute in Germany, where he was also able to pursue research in medieval art. His work has been well received overseas: He has exhibited in Kyoto, Hong Kong, Geneve, Hamburg, London, St.Paul, San Francisco, Berkeley and Madison, as well as in mainland China.


He Qi strongly expresses a type of aesthetics with a peaceful and stable composition. As humans approach the end of the century with a jumble of conflicting emotions, He Qi affirms, "We need to hear a peaceful voice from the angel in heaven."
Today, he is more able to creatively express the deeper feelings of his inner soul. If art is to move people, it must first move the artist. We need more scholars and artists like He Qi who are able to stir the spirit and enhance the culture's strengths.

Today, He ranks as arguably China's most internationally sought after contemporary Christian artist. His brilliant, colorful and highly contemporary paintings emerge unmistakably from ongoing Chinese contexts.
