Walasse Ting Biography

Walasse Ting (1929-2010) was born in Wuxi, China and brought up in Shanghai. At the age of 23, he moved to France and became acquainted with the artists of the anti-formalism movement CoBrA. Strongly influenced by Matisse and other masters, his early works were mainly plain black abstract embedded with flying emotions and Oriental spiritual connotation.

Being inspired by Western contemporary art, while exploring the fusion of Chinese and Western aesthetics, Ting began to develop figurative drawings with liberating style. He was famous for his unique blending of vivid colours on rice paper. With expressive dripping strokes and bright fluorescent colours, the women, flowers, parrots, horses and fish are energetic, sensational and dreamy in Ting’s paintings.
