XIE AIGE

Born in 1977 in Hunan Province, China, Xie Aige (谢艾格)
is a sculptor whose works in bronze display a sense of
sincerity, clarity, and hope. She graduated from Shanghai
Fine Arts College in Shanghai, and taught in the Cultural
and Art Design Department of Shanghai’s Tongji University.
Currently living and working in Shanghai, she responds to
the craziness of her adopted city through works of figurative
peace. In today’s world of rapid changes and hectic lives,
Xie Aige’s sculptures are a breath of fresh air, uncorrupted
and serene.

Striking a balance between the ideal and reality, she
sculpts figures that are poised, whimsical, reflective,
and charming. Poetically conceptual at heart, Xie Aige is
inspired by Buddhist thought and the human spirit. With
many of her works depicting men in nature, at peace or
play, she draws on childhood memories of rural China and
prominently features symbolic elements (such as birds for
freedom and apples for desire) in her sculpted world.
