Qiu Zhijie is known for his avant-garde creations that show the struggles between human destiny and self-assertion. For many Chinese, defining Mr. Qiu is difficult. He is an artist, a curator, a calligrapher, a professor, a writer, and a father. His creative vision spans the art forms of calligraphy, ink painting, printmaking, photography, video, installation, theater, and so much more.
