TAGGED AS Beijing, China, Chinese Academy of Fine Art, Chinese Artist, Emerging Chinese Artist, Nie Xiao
A recent graduate of the famous China Academy of Fine Art in Beijing. Painting is ingrained in her blood, both of her parents work in the art industry, running their own construction and interiors company, they have hugely influenced her. Her work is full of imagination, bold, colorful and what she refers to as ‘shining’. Xiao loves bright colours and strong contrasts. She does not feel the need to express a story transparently and is happy to leave the viewer to find their own story in her work. Most of her work is inspired by the small details in life, accidental moments, always referring to Chinese society and culture in these moments.
