Gao Qian (b. 1973, Nanjing, China), works and lives in Nanjing. She completed her master degree from the Nanjing Academy of Fine Arts of Chinese painting. She worked at Shanghai Museum. In 2016, she obtained her PhD from Chinese National Academy of Arts. She is currently working as a professional artist at the department of literature and art, Chinese National Academy of Arts. She is honored with the title of Chinese First Rank Artist.


Her works contain the appearance of ‘the thing’ which is always incessantly chattering in  low voice at one's ear, like lullabies. Thick strongly fragrant colour and fine techniques have lure audience to slow down and listen to the painting. It has not rectified artificially, but lively, natural, and has eastern women's tenderness. Her works have the fine and smooth lines which did not indulge at all. Also have the colour which is refined and temperate and moist, consummate and calm and steady. In her idea of works, she said ‘I regard painting as a kind of solidified time, it is a mark that the emotion leaves in a certain time and space’, which makes her works possess a deep sense of time. As if the time has become eternity in her works.
