Ma spent his childhood with his grandparents in the countryside, where he studied Chinese calligraphy and traditional Chinese literature with his grandfather. Ma’s work is deeply influenced by traditional Chinese art and culture, along with everyday life experiences, which he expresses through contemporary art language. Ma began exploring conceptual art at an early age. The artist leaves the completion of an artwork to the work itself. Human relationships, the exchange of emotion, displacement in different cities and the passing of time are all major influences in his work.
