Liu Quan 1961 was born in Beijing.
Engaged in oil painting, acrylic, collage, and other comprehensive material art practice in the 1980`s.
In his works, he adopts a multiple perspective to investigate the structure and formation of identity through myth, personal memory and lived experience. Liu Quan creates digitally enhanced photographs based on surrealistic, staged scenes that comment on universal social conflicts. Wang has observed his country morph from an insular, rural nation to an economic giant, living through events that shook the country like the Cultural Revolution.
Liu Quan talks about the human condition and portrays the young generation, confused between past and present influences, as a reaction to China’s rapid modernization and the increasing loss of traditional culture. Although set in contemporary urban China, his portraits recall the composition of classical literati paintings.
