Fengdan Qin

was born in 1997, in Beijing. Qin is currently living and working in Brussels. She acquired her graduate degree (Grand distinction) in 2022 from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Brussels. 
The body of her work seeks to explore the nature of existence, melding the realms of pictorial pleasures, post-modern literature, and the fascinating science of natural history that binds each species together. As the painter explains, when the language of painting fails to assure her, she looks to science to sustain her visions.
Through her work, she aims to evoke a profound sense of wonder, introspection, and appreciation for the natural world that surrounds us.
Paintings are a way to celebrate beauty and sensuality. Colors burst forth in harmonious symphonies, enticing the viewer into a mesmerising world of emotion and expression. She believes in the power of visual delights to transcend the ordinary, awakening a connection with the very essence of human experience. Behind each brushstroke, there are narrative tales of delight and passion, inviting audiences to indulge in the simple yet profound joy of aesthetics.
Inspiration drawn from post-modern literature to natural history museums permeates her artistic narratives. To deconstruct traditional narratives and visual conventions, her paintings become open-ended invitations for contemplation, questioning established norms, and embracing the enigmatic allure of existence.
At the heart of her creative process lies a deep reverence for the interconnectedness of all living beings. Her imagination transcends time and space, intertwining past, present, and future. The human body, in all its vulnerability and resilience, becomes a muse through which she explores the essence of existence. Flesh, with its ephemeral nature, becomes a fundamental essence through which the stories of life's intricate tapestry are etched.
