Liu Xuan Qi is a contemporary artist currently residing in Singapore. A graduate in art & design from the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology (the former Shanghai Publishing and Printing College), Liu left his decade-long career as art director in the field of design and advertising to pursue art full time. With his background as a graphic designer, he explores elements from traditional Chinese ink paintings, icons and imagery from eastern cultures and fuses them with contemporary design, merging the east and west. He adopted a different artistic expression by exploring the art with his personal style touch of traditional media and design element of eastern meets western culture.
