With gallery spaces in the heart of Hong Kong and London, 3812 has both Europe and China written into its DNA. Co-founded by Calvin Hui and Mark Peaker, 3812 represents and exhibits both modern and contemporary Chinese and British artists, fostering dialogues between them. The gallery regularly places their work in major public and private collections – and has participated in important art fairs such as Masterpiece. 3812 continues to develop its vision through representing contemporary artists of various genres such as the much-acclaimed Beijing-based Zhao Zhao, the Artist of the Year Award of Art China (AAC) in 2019, whose works were exhibited extensively, including in New York’s MoMA PS1 and his one person show at the Long Museum in Shanghai in 2022 and the sensuous porcelains of Li Hongwei, collected by the Art Institute of Chicago and the British Museum among many other museums.

QIAN WU: BLACK AND BLUE
3 June – 31 October
3812 Gallery present Qian Wu’s Black and Blue, the artists first solo exhibition in London accompanied with TJ Ren’s Populus Euphratica I, a special feature exclusively for Asian Art in London.
Born in Xiamen, China, in 1991, Qian Wu studied painting in America, inspiring him to transcend the boundaries between East and West and integrate traditional Chinese brush painting with the bold strokes of Western abstraction as Chinese artists Zao Wou-Ki and Chu Teh-Chun had done in the 1950s.
Using a mix of oil, acrylic resin and ink in black, white and blue, Wu leads viewers on a journey between abstract and structural forms.
“As a new generation artist from China, Wu embraces the modern living experience and explores brand new artistic presentation through his profound understanding and passion for his traditional culture. Wu’s dynamic contemporary ink works, from paintings to installation works, resonate with 3812’s defined cultural notion – Eastern origin in contemporary expression”.
Calvin Hui, Co- founder and Chairman of 3812 Gallery and Curator.
