Born in 1987 in Shanghai, Qian Jiahua graduated from Hangzhou’s China Academy of Art in 2011. She now lives and works in Shanghai.

A painter working mainly with acrylic, Qian Jiahua produces geometric abstract works where large patches of color are delimited by thin contrasting lines. She tries to break the easy balance of a rectangular canvas by the use of simple forms.

Her work has already been largely exhibited including at White Cube London, K11 Museum Shanghai, Long Museum Shanghai and Henglu Art Museum Hangzhou.
