One of the founding members of the Stars Group (1979), the very first movement of contemporary Chinese art, Qu Leilei has since then continued to create ground-breaking artworks, revealing his ability to master both Eastern and Western traditions. Globally recognised, his work has been collected by some of the most prestigious museums such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Ashmolean Museum and more recently the British Museum, amongst others.
In Silent Revelations Qu Leilei offers a glimpse into the beauty of human forms, presenting a harmonious union between the traditional Chinese medium of ink and paper with an exceptional level of realism that was once achieved by European Renaissance masters.
