KQ Huang is a British-Chinese artist based in London. Born in Birmingham, he is interested in exploring the labour and heritage of the Chinese diaspora. His work incorporates traditional forms of Chinese culture such as silk painting and calligraphy. Motivated by the possibilities of working in the space between two cultures, he seeks to explore forgotten histories and the attitudes and values of our current culture. His work has been exhibited at the Fitzrovia Gallery, London and at the Royal Academy of Arts. He can be found on Instagram @kqhuangart.
Huang holds a BA in History from Durham University and an MA in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London where he specialised in transatlantic visual culture, representations of slavery, and contemporary art of the African diaspora. He enjoys visiting galleries, thinking about the intersections between Christianity and art, and clinging to the dream that Aston Villa will someday play again in Europe.
