Menghan Qi was born in the North region of China in 1989. She graduated with her BFA in painting from LuXun Academy of Fine Art in 2011, and a MFA in painting from The Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015.
Working with drawing, painting and installations, her work involves a strong personal confession about her spiritual position and surroundings as a foreigner living in America. She mines memories and media constructions of social expectations with works that are charged with a grotesque, allegorical quality.
Qi has been included in many solo and group exhibitions in China, Canada, and the United States. Her work is housed in many museum and private collections.
She is currently working and living in Los Angeles, CA.
