Art by Xizhou Xie

Hi everyone! Xizhou (pronounced she-joe) here. I am a Madison-based artist focused on modern abstract art. In my online store, you will find mostly original art, with prints and printed coasters as well. 

Five fun facts about me and my art business: 

1. Any medium is fair game! I paint primarily with acrylic, but also with watercolor and inks. My favorite recent creations are mixed-media using all of the different paints!

2. No size too big or too small: My paintings range from 4 by 4 inch to 4 by 5 ft. 

3. The city of Madison recently purchased the rights to print a painting of mine on a utility box on Fish Hatch and S Park as a part of the Madison Utility Box Art Program.

4. Last year I won an award at the Artful Women exhibit organized by Wisconsin Women’s Network.

5. I’ve sold more than 200 original paintings to Madison homes and businesses. 

Holiday trifecta: giveaway, moving sale, and deals! 

GIVEAWAY: I am giving away a set of 4 coasters of your choice! They are my most popular holiday gifts, and I want to gift them to one of you. All you have to do is like the Dane Handmade Facebook post, and follow me on Facebook at @Art by Xizhou Xie. That’s it! Optionally, comment which 4 coasters are your favorites! 

MOVING SALE: I’m planning to move early next year (within Madison, I love the city so much). A lot of medium to large pieces are on 50% off so that I do not need to move them. Sale prices are in effect until Nov 30th.  Browse the sale at
