The dark arts of Sheng Qi: Creation and Mutilation,

For the past twenty years, Sheng Qi has been creating remarkable works of art in diverse mediums.
A prevelant theme in his work has been the study of the body, body language and its culture.
When he left Beijing in 1989, he cut off the little finger from his left hand and buried it in a flower pot.

Sheng Qi graduated from Central St Martins College of Art and Design in London and returned to
Beijing in 1998.
Since returning, he has been selected to participate in the Nippon International Performance Festival and the recent International Center of Photography show, Between Past and Future, where his photographic work was selected for the cover of the exhibition catalog.

Sheng Qi is represented by Wiegersma Fine Art, Brussels, Belgium and F2 Gallery, Beijing, China
