Faux is delighted to present a unique collection of limited edition Lightboxes by Hu Qinwu
Hu Qinwu (born 1969) was born in Shandong, China, and currently works in Beijing as a painter, photographer and printmaker.
Qinwu studied oil painting at the Yantai Normal Academy, Shandong where he graduated in 1990. He went onto attain a Masters degree in Painting from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing in 2008. In 2010 Qinwu taught as a guest lecturer at the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing. Qinwu's choice of materials for his paintings align with the scholarly tradition of Chinese ink painting. However, Qinwu subverts the traditions of the medium through a style that aligns more closely with the aestheticisms of the Abstract movement. The concept behind his style and technique, however, is informed by Zen Buddhist philosophies and practices. Critics have noted that Qinwu's command of ink, tempera, acrylic, oil and print media signals the germination of an exciting new approach to traditional techniques and the burgeoning of an abstract style amongst a young generation of artists in Beijing.

A boxed set of 4 fine bone china sinner plates by Lulu Ngie (edition of 30 )
Lulu Ngie focuses on Chinese ink painting and prefers to use simple lines and forms in her figurative works. She also works in oil and watercolour. Today, her ink work is gaining much interest both at home and overseas and is perceived as a potent tool that raises questions about the role of Chinese and East Asian traditions in contemporary art, especially when global events such as art fairs are pushing this medium towards a more homogeneous aesthetic. Majoring in painting, Lulu Ngie, graduated from Hong Kong Art School in 2006.
A boxed set of 4 fine bone china sinner plates by Firenze Lai (edition of 30)
Firenze Lai says that she knows her studio of a few hundred square feet intimately; from the textures of its surfaces to the way the breeze blows into the room. The spaces depicted in her paintings are equally intimate. When curators seem to be at a loss for words to discuss troubled times, fear of containment, and the feeling of being completely enmeshed in a space, they turn to Lai's paintings, which have been shown as part of Para Site's A Journal of the Plague Year. Fear, ghosts, rebels. SARS, Leslie and the Hong Kong story (17 May–20 July 2013), and A Hundred Years of Shame—Songs of Resistance and Scenarios for Chinese Nations (6 March–17 May 2015). Further, Lai has shown work in international solo and group presentations, including Turbulence at Mirrored Gardens in Guangzhou (29 October–28 November 2015), the 10th Shanghai Biennale, Social Factory (23 November 2014–31 March 2015), the 2015 New Museum Triennial, Surround Audience (25 February–24 May 2015), and in Venice for the 57th Venice Biennale (13 May–26 November 2017). More recently, a selection of nine of Lai's paintings appear in Tai Kwun Contemporary's Contagious Cities: Far Away, Too Close (26 January–21 April 2019).

And hairstyles and shoes are among his favoured subjects with work often subtly alluding to issues of race, ethnicity, culture, gender and sexual equality.

In 2009, he won first prize at Hong Kong Biennale, and in 2010 and 2011, he was awarded the Special Award “Personal Exhibition” by the 5th International Arte Laguna Prize.

Unframed 60x60cm Artist: Gao Pingn
Gao Ping is a traditionalist in a contemporary world. She has avidly studied Chinese traditional painting and much of her inspiration is drawn from her knowledge of those techniques and the Masters of those times. She uses these techniques with expert precision to create inner conversations and the results are contemporary paintings heavy with emotion. An introvert who battles with the fast pace of the city, she uses painting as her means of escape and communication. Much of her work seeks to bring still and calm, much of it is a journey to a less frenetic environment. Her abstract works take her away from daily noise and her ink studies are more reflective and nostalgic of her childhood and the scenes she sees around her in daily life. She is a well exhibited artist with international recognition and has been featured in “Half the Sky”, a book by Luise Guest, Manager of Research at the acclaimed White Rabbit Collection in Australia.
