Manhattan Boutique Real Estate Supports A Painting Artist from China
By: One Art Space
On May 2, 2019 MBRE holds an event in support of Qiheng Liu, an artist from China in his first US debut at One Art Space with his solo exhibition "Defying Gravity".
In a review written by Stephen DiLauro of artsmanagementmagazine.com "Qiheng Liu is a visionary and a superb technician. The clarity of his style in his latest series of paintings displays the influence of the portraiture of Hans Holbein the Younger. Liu doesn't paint portraits, though. He takes pleasure in dismantling the idea of a portrait and reconstructing it, using his own code of images to invite the viewer into a secret sphere where playfulness and power balance each other as art comes into being."
Qiheng Liu's inspiration stems from an awakening; that failures leads to success. This journey, to discover one's true self as an artist, has swept Qiheng Liu from Inner Mongolia, China to Glasgow, Scotland, to London, England to Portland, Oregon, and finally Tribeca, New York, USA. The objective of Qiheng Liu's work is to try to understand the different elements of painting while exploring the relationship between them; to achieve self-actualization through expression.
Joan Brothers, President of MBRE says, "When you put art in an apartment it becomes a home and an expression of yourself."
