Wong Ping: Hong Kong Fables Ocula Conversation Wong Ping: Hong Kong Fables

There is something irrepressibly compelling about the lewd animated videos of Wong Ping. Is it their flat surfaces rendered in popping colours? Or their dark narratives that resonate with the deepest recesses of the human psyche? They have been included in an impressive repertoire of group exhibitions in recent years, including One Hand Clapping at...

Julian Schnabel

b. 1951, USA

Schnabel’s mythic, often controversial career is rooted in his ability to morph and change using a vast alchemy of sources and materials composed and distributed across surface and support in defiance of the very notions of moderation, rationality, and order. His baroque attitude is embodied in audaciously scaled paintings that, over the course of time, have combined oil painting and collage techniques; classical pictorial elements inspired by historical art and neo-expressionist features; abstraction and figuration. Tackling appropriately expansive themes such as sexuality, obsession, suffering, redemption, death, and belief, he has employed a diversity of found materials including broken plates, diverse textiles such as Kabuki theater backdrops, tarpaulins, and velvet; a plethora of images, names, and fragments of language; as well as thickly applied paint, viscous resin, and digital reproduction.

Schnabel lives and works in New York City and Montauk, Long Island.

Julian Schnabel is a legend more than he is a man, known for his voracious appetites, his larger-than-life personality, and his seemingly limitless capacity to explore a range of creative activities successfully: from painter, to film director, to furniture designer, to sculptor, to architect. As a painter and since the 1980s, when he first...

February, 1888. A small, cheerless room in the south of France. Vincent Van Gogh has come here to escape the grey Paris light, but this doesn't seem much better. He flings down his heavy pack, takes a seat on a lone wooden chair, unlaces his boots. Yes, you think, have a nap; this is all exhausting. But no – he arranges the beaten-up old shoes on...

A year in the life of Julian Schnabel Related Press A year in the life of Julian Schnabel GQ : 15 May 2018

The famous artist and award-winning filmmaker Julian Schnabel really does not like to give interviews. It’s not that he’s shy or retiring – quite the opposite, in fact – but he’s been laying bare his feelings through his vast, expressive paintings for four decades and he doesn’t see why he needs to keep on explaining himself.
