About the Artist

Sheng Qi is a globally-recognised contemporary Chinese artist famed for his unique body art and distinctive painting style.

He is best known for his act of personal defiance following the events in Tiananmen, 1989: he cut off the little finger of his left hand. Since then, he has woven the image of this self-mutilation into his work.

He has been featured in Phaidon's 500 Self Portraits, The Chinese Art Book and Body of Art alongside contemporary and old masters such as Ai Weiwei, Andy Warhol and Michelangelo.

Sheng Qi has been collected by prestigious museums such as the Metropolitan in New York and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
