Born in Anhui, China, and graduated from the Stage Art Department of
Shanghai Drama Institute. Xue Song currently lives and works in
Shanghai as a professional painter.
His calligraphic works and
figurative paintings are characterized by a bold and energetic style.
Xue’s trademark collages represent the many different aspects of
Chinese culture; for example, he incorporates traditional Chinese
paintings, calligraphy, religious icons, legendary figures and
historical photographs. Through these classic images, Xue Song makes
deliberate and specific references to Chinese history, society, politics
and art. Currently, his chief interest is calligraphy, which of all
the genres of Chinese art he believes has achieved the highest level.
Therefore, Xue Song, with his thoughtfulness and intellect, shows
respect for Chinese tradition, while thinking about which direction
Chinese calligraphy should take nowadays.
