Biography from Kingsley Art Auction:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Jiao Xing-Tao was born in 1970 in China, and graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, where he currently gives lecture as an associate professor.  Since 2004, he started to take unnoticed disposable items as creation subject, such as shopping bags or chewing gum’s wrapping paper.  These discarded items are enlarged and emphasized to explore human nature, desire, the longing of being wrapped, as well as to recall people’s imagination upon things be covered.  His artworks present his wishes to rediscover sculpture’s meaning of.  As a result, disposable items not only inspire Jiao Xing Tao with philosophic retrospect and fresh visual experience, but also make themselves become a beautiful object again.
