Wu Qiong was born in Beijing, China in 1981. He graduated from the Beijing Shi Fan University in 2001 and Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 2006.Being sculptor and painter, Wu creates art that represents the childhood that he and many others of his generation remembered and in doing so, creates touching and amusing portraits of childhood that are distinctly contemporary in the Chinese art scene. His works represent the childhood of Wu Qiong and his contemporaries and therefore created touching and interesting portraits of children with obvious contemporary style in the field of Chinese art.

This concept is furthered by the innocent expressions on the faces of his sculptures and paints subject, which are a great part of their appeal. Sometimes his characters march to tunes in their heads, or take to the air amidst fluffy white clouds. At other times, they come to terms with reality  – which possibly symbolizes the artist – along with his alter egos in the guise of children-having woken up to the way life really is.       



有男孩与女孩携手漫步于夕阳之下 有二人飞翔于云海之间 有端坐树梢上的 也有沉浸于一片汪洋中的 时而是一个人的独角戏 时而是二人世界的静谧出游…… 然而无论故事怎样叙述 儿童化的卡通形象 双目闭合,微微上仰的面庞,含蓄半张的嘴唇 都离不开画面人物“吴琼式”的典型书写 在当下中国艺术市场消费和娱乐至上的整体景观中,吴琼作品中个人的“纯粹经验”就显得充满情感、真实而可信
