Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Xie Hengxing

Xie Hengxing was born in 1959. XIE's memorable portraits of Tibetans have won him international acclaim. The splendidly dressed figures are portrayed in vibrant colours and meticulously rendered details. A perfectionist, XIE normally spends at least a few months on each of his large-scale paintings, and hence completes no more than four to five works a year.
