One to Watch

Erqi Luo

Erqi Luo‘s first degree was in painting and in his collage series Shape of Picture he uses paper cuts and remnants in a painterly way, transforming discarded scraps of color and form into exquisitely made abstract collages. What he describes as the “less important portion” or “the missing piece” become in these works the “leading actor.”

Erqi Luo studied at the Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts and the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Besançon, France, and has had many solo shows in China and France, as well as participating in numerous group shows.
