About the artist
Liu Qinghe, a renowned Chinese artist that focuses on ink and wash.

With an unique language of ink and wash, his work portrays the spiritual images of contemporary citizens, touches people to reveal their deep moods. Though respected as the representative artist of “Urban Painter with Ink and Wash”, Liu Qinghe does not believe the symbolized things in the paintings are what he really needs, as for ink figures he has his own far-reaching thoughts.
