WENSEN QI, AKA Vincent Cazeneuve
(b. 1977 in Toulouse, France)

Wensen Qi, AKA Vincent Cazeneuve, studied at Ecole des Metiers d’Art in Revel with an expertise in wood cabinet making, marquetry and gilding. Lacquer painting, one of the most ancient arts in China, acted like a strong magnet to him. So Wensen committed himself to live in China and with his own language deciphering the work of lacquer, learning and drawing lessons from traditional Chinese lacquer paintings. Simultaneously, he blends his own creativity into Chinese lacquer traditions, mixing elements of Western modern art into his lacquer works. Wensen is deeply touched by natural objects and natural beauty that contain endless stories and mysteries that he would like to recount through his lacquer paintings. Besides Chinese lacquer, he makes extensive use of various natural elements such as mud, linen, silver, gold, tin, lead, shells, stone, wood, and so on. Wensen also adopts various texture effects, including lithography, engraving, relief piling, mosaic collage and incrustations, lending his artworks abundant tactile feelings.
