  XIANNING - On Apr 10th, the exhibition of the prize-winning works and nominators of the 2018 John Moores Painting Prize (China) has been formally unveiled, and Zhong Xueqing, a lecturer from the Fine Arts College of Hubei University of Science and Technology (HBUST), won the first prize with the work “as if treading on thin ice”.

  The John Moores Painting Prize is set up in 1957, having 60 years’ history. As an international competition platform of easel art and the most important art awards for painting, it has discovered many artists, like David Hockney, Peter Doig and Richard Hamilton. In 2010, the Fine Arts College of Shanghai University together with the John Moores Exhibition Foundation in Liverpool, UK introduced the John Moores Painting Prize into China, which is simultaneous with the Britain competition, and eventually becomes a regular art competition held every 2 years in both China and UK.

  Zhong Xueqing, who was born in 1972, graduated from the Oil Painting Department of Hubei Institute of Fine Arts (HIFA) and obtained a bachelor’s degree in 1994, and then he graduated from the Mural Painting Department of China Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) with a master degree in 2002. He is a teacher of the Fine Arts College of HUST, and used to hold his own exhibition, “Zhongli oil painting exhibition” in Guangzhou Academy in 2016.

  As a teacher, Zhong Xueqing detaches his artistic creation from the mainstream, painting as a loner. He starts from the basics of painting whenever he draws a picture, and he experiences this world by getting a better understanding of art, making an attempt to get close to this world.

  “He is exactly what Mu Xin said ‘a big snowfall in the night’; anyone who knows him can sense the luxuriance of his inner world.” The chairman of the Xianning Artists Association, Liu Xuchuan said the success of Zhong Xueqing lies in that he always keeps in chasing his own dream.
