Qian Qian is a Chinese multidisciplinary artist, designer, illustrator, and art director. He graduated with a degree in design for digital media from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and today he lives and works in New York.
His work stands out due to the strong mix of influences resulting from his personal career, whereby he combines and reinterprets his own experiences. During the creative process, he uses graphic design tools to produce the structure and composition of the project and then develops his personal expression through illustration.
In 2005, he organized the exhibition Get It Louder, a large-scale event in China. Considered among the "20 under 30 New Visual Artists" by Print magazine, his work has been reviewed and exhibited in important institutions such as the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Lincoln Center in New York.
Qian currently works independently developing his personal projects, as well as working for advertising agencies, although in the future he plans to open his own studio. For this designer, style is nothing more than a viewpoint that molds itself to each project and moment.
