Shanghai based artist Cui Jie is best known for her paintings that fuse together modern and imaginary architectural forms. She constructs new urban landscapes by synthesizing disciplines of architecture across time periods and cultures.


Taking references from architecture and public sculptures in China after the 1978 economic reforms, as well as European modernist and post-war Japanese architectural movement, Cui Jie's work also draws on natural forms visually linking urban and biological growth.

Her latest series of paintings examines the viewing pavilions on the Victoria Peak in Hong Kong. Victoria Peak not only provides the most iconic view of the Hong Kong skyline, serving as one of the main tourist attractions in Hong Kong, it is also closely linked to various nationalist and capitalist interests which she explores. Cui is interested in the study of ancient Chinese pavilions and the significance of their spiritual and cultural use, as well as their parallel space satellites. 

Cui Jie has had solo exhibitions in China, Israel and Ireland and has been involved in major group shows in China, the USA and across Europe.
