GUIZANG Gallery is founded by Qing Qi, an experienced artist who graduated in Master Degree of Art,Design&Visual culture from London Metropolitan University.
GUI comes from Qing Qi's grand-mother’s nickname given by her father-an honour landlord but lost all his land during the first word war in China (1910’s). Gui married to a common civil as the second wife and has the first child- Qing Qi's mother-ZANG and another three sons(1940’s). Zang became a teacher married to Qing Qi's father-Jun-an English professor then has their only son(1960s). That may be all what Zang would like to have in her life but Gui advised her to have a daughter look like her. Then Qing Qi came to this world after Gui past away two years and when Jun was 40s. Jun has the drawing talent from his father but never use it because he would rather than teaching English for living better for his families at that time in China. His father-(Qing Qi's grandfather) gave Qing Qi a blessing before he past away when Qing was only hundred days old.
Qing Qi's talent has been found by her brother when she was four years old but her parents does not like her to do drawings until she was fourteen. They think to be an artist is means to choose a hard life. Qing Qi totally agree with that but she chose it. Qing Qi came to England to study Master of fine art when she was twenty-four. Now she is in her 30’s and going to study PHD and selling drawings. That is why we call -- GuiZang ,also means The Hided Treasure in Chinese.
