Wang Huangsheng

b. 1956, China

Wang Huangsheng is a prominent artist, curator and critic in the Chinese contemporary art scene. Trained in the tradition of "Shui Mo"- literati painting- Wang's practice has grown to encompass light installation and sculpture as well as painting. His well known monochrome works appear as webs produced from a single unbroken line. His father was a calligrapher and literati painter who passed on his skills to his son. But it was the artist's move to Beijing that proved formative, introducing the artist to leading intellectuals and creatives such as the poet Bei Dao.

Exploring the relation between visual languages and knowledge production, personal ethics and social responsibility, as well as the link between history and the present, Wang's roaming line attempts to break from limited ideas of continuity. Since July 2009, Wang Huangsheng is the director of a highly significant Chinese art space – Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) Art Museum, Beijing, and he is the former director of the Guangdong Museum of Art.
