A trailblazer

Qiu Ting, whose works are marked by refined brushwork, has been recognized as a leading figure in ink art since the 1990s. He rose to fame for a work produced in college — a copy of Dwelling in Seclusion in the Qingbian Mountains by the 14th-century painter Wang Meng, which reflected a long-term accumulation of skill since childhood. While Qiu is not an ink painter in the traditional sense, he has been exploring ways to push forward the frontier of ink art by introducing elements of other forms of art. Blazing a Brilliant Trail, an exhibition that will end on Sunday at Tsinghua University Art Museum in Beijing, navigates his experiments with the language of ink and brush over time. In his work, Qiu has consistently sought to accentuate the spirituality of nature and the philosophical take on the relations between people and the universe, which are essential to the traditions of Chinese painting. He also pays much attention to the interaction of his creations with the modern exhibition space, and has turned to technology to create digital ink works, so as to give the ink tradition a revival.

9 am-5 pm, closed on Mondays. Tsinghua University campus, Haidian district, Beijing.010-6278-1012.
