Paul Smith has announced an upcoming art exhibition by Chinese contemporary artists, Xiang Jing and Qu Guangci who go under the name X+Q. Having had their work displayed in galleries all over the world from London to Shanghai, they have now teamed up to bring us a charming sculpture series, to be shown at the Paul Smith store in Pavilion KL.

The handmade X+Q sculptures are separated into two different collections. Xiang Jing's I Have Seen Happiness series celebrates youth and optimism with her rabbit sculptures that come in shades of red, blue, yellow and green. This particular collection was inspired by Paul's own love for rabbits.

Qu Giangci's collection, The Angelest Qian is a fusion between Eastern and Western elements. The two aspects can be seen in his series of winged oriental angels that aim to instil brightness and positivity through art.

Visit the Paul Smith store in Pavilion KL from 2 March to 2 May 2015 to view and purchase these pretty pieces from the X+Q Art exhibition.
