Wang Tiande Biography

Wang Tiande was born in Shanghai in 1960. The artist aims to re-contextualize tradition within a contemporary framework through ink paintings, digital compositions, and thought-provoking installations. With ink paintings which largely reference traditional Literati concepts, Wang Tiande captures a new form of expression that reflects today’s contemporary culture while incorporating conceptual ideas. He recreates ink brush painting for the twenty-first century. By burning symbols, which resemble Chinese characters, onto rice paper, his works evoke the essence of traditional Chinese art in a modern context. The burn marks are made with an incense stick, creating shapes and spaces, similar to that of landscapes, water and mountains.

Wang Tiande’s innovative approach does not dispel the significance and influence of tradition in his work; rather, he embraces traditional concepts and methods while injecting a modern perspective that is fresh and distinctly his own. Although a sense of nostalgia exists in his work, Wang continuously strives to break the barriers of traditional ink painting.

Wang’s work has been collected by the British Museum, London, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Boston Museum of Fine Art, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Shanghai Museum of Art, Guangdong Art Museum, Shenzhen Art Museum and JP Morgan Bank. In 2006, Wang Tiande was exhibited in Brush and Ink, which was the first exhibition of contemporary Chinese painters held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
