Xiang Jing (born 1968, Beijing, China) is an artist based in Beijing working in sculpture. Xiang Jing graduated from the Department of Sculpting of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, which is located in Beijing, China. She was instantly successful in her field. Her graduating works won first prize in the “Graduation Show of Central Academy of Fine Arts 1995” and she also won the Okamatsu Family Fund. These sculptures that won these prizes were collected by the school because of the beauty and interest that were shown in them. After graduation, she continued to sculpt women and a few other objects. She taught at Shanghai Normal University. She has also recently been working for Chongqing University. She is widely known for her sculpting and is recognized by getting invitations to display her sculptures all over the world. Xiang Jing is one of the few successful sculptors or painters who excels at creating a woman’s body which depicts the realistically and imperfection. She puts female characteristics in every sculpture she creates. Each sculpture seems to have a unique trait that tells a story of a certain aspect of life. Her sculpting has evolved since her original works at the Central Academy of Fine Arts to a unique style that is unmatched by any other artist. She continues to live and work in Shanghai. Most of her sculptures are based on women whose shows the imperfect nature and realness of women. She does not make her sculptures perfect; instead, she gives them flaws that are common in women. These flaws often include a flabby waistline, a lack of expression on the face, and often an off shaped body. Xiang Jing seems to convey the humility or emptiness of the everyday woman.
