Wensen Qi

Born in 1977 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Wensen Qi is a French artist, born in 1977, and has been living in the Chinese mountains of Sichuan since 10 years.

When he left Toulouse, where he was the marquetry specialist for cities of Chengdu then Chongqing, Vincent Cazeneuve didn't only take up a new name, Wensen Qi given by his lacquer master, but also became one of the best contemporary experts (probably the best non-Asian) ancient know-how of the Chinese laquer.

Wensen Qi paints abstracts lacquers on various mediums (wood, jute, old rice bags, etc.) which are a big part of his works. Fan of this technique, which he had already begun in France, Wensen Qi wanted to surpass himself through a very contemporary approach, combining this old Asian tradition with the 20th century Western artistic movement and abstraction in his creations. His very original pieces never take the easy way around. They play with material and brilliance.

Wensen Qi is closely followed by many loyal collectors in Asia and Europe, who appreciate the unique combination of ancient Asian art and Western contemporary expression.

Wensen Qi's work are a part of public collections in France and China, and private collections in France, Italy, Switzerland, U.S.A and China.
