About the artwork

A man appears to be embarking on a journey, clad in a suit and holding a trunk, in this work by Wu Qiong. In his art, Wu Qiong often represents children coming to terms with the world of adulthood, but still remaining distinctly childlike; a suggestion that part of us never truly lets go of childhood. This concept is furthered by the innocent expression on the face of his figure, with closed eyes and an upturned expression. Through this work, Wu Qiong illustrates the beginning of a new phase of life, which he represents as a journey in which the process and growth is much more significant than the destination itself.

About the artist

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. Both 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. Acclaimed both internationally and locally, Wu Qiong has participated in various international art fairs, including Art Miami, Art Cologne and Bridge Art Fair.
