China-USA

 

Spending his time between New York and Beijing, Quentin Shih represents new school Asian photography. His elegant photographic style has conquered Asian fashion magazines, and he offers a form of Chinese “rigor” to international luxury houses, which he introduces to the archetypes of a national aesthetic tinted with State-enforced formality. In particular, the Dior fashion house has already collaborated with this talented artist, in keeping with its campaign to promote contemporary Chinese artists. Quentin Shih is like a playwright with his pictures, capable of painting true scenes, concepts set up in a theatrical manner. He always starts from a sketch, fascinated by the city and its lights. He brings down its walls and façades to invite the viewer inside. I personally love using cinematic style to show the loneliness of people in a surrealistic way, and I really care about the lighting, color and all the elements that can help to tell a story”, tells us the artist who has us captivated with his “augmented” reality and is successfully trying his hand at filmmaking.
