Crossing Art was established by Catherine Lee, a New York/Shanghai-based art patron and collector with the opening of the original gallery in Queens, New York. It was founded with the belief that Contemporary art can broaden dialogues among cultures and discourses and should be shared with communities not limited to certain locale or audiences.

Since its founding in 2008, Crossing Art has exhibited more than sixty exhibitions and public art projects in New York City. It has worked cooperatively with organizations and artists worldwide to broaden artistic discourse, deepen appreciation, and connect audiences and communities. Drawing on its unique position bridging North America and Asia, it serves both artists and clientele through public art installations, exhibition programming, artist representation, and various curatorial projects. With representative offices in Shanghai, Crossing Art's ethos is to promote innovative artists and to nurture the best talent from a select group of contemporary artists whose work or roots lie in the tradition and heritage from Asia. Offering a unique perspective on the contemporary art world, its mission is to forge closer ties between the East and West, and to inspire the appreciation and understanding of art and design and its role in society.


Qin Feng, Desire Landscape, 2016, Acrylic and Ink on linen paper, 62 x 51 in

Qin Feng was born in Xinjiang, China in 1961, his upbringing greatly influencing his work. He graduated from Shandong Arts and Crafts Institute in 1985, and has taught at the Berlin University of the Arts and the Central Academy of Fine Arts. In 2007, he founded the Museum of Contemporary Art Beijing, which exhibits both international and Chinese artworks to create dialogues between the East and the West. He is currently a research associate at Harvard University's Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies.

Qin Feng has won several art awards and national art contribution awards in both Europe and America, with his "post-modern ink painting" being featured in many museum collections and art institutions across the world. As an artist and scholar across both Eastern and Western cultures, Qin Feng'sworks are poetically compatible with the romance of Western expressionist philosophy and the charm of Chinese writing. Through the development and application of multi-media, traditional and modern materials, the form, expression and language give a fresh personal context and style. His works not only have the profound fusion of traditional East and West contexts, but also the richness of Oriental philosophical abstract expression.
