"Master of the Big Brush Strokes: Yan Pei Ming" by David Barboza

SHANGHAI, 2008: The artist Yan Pei Ming is smoking a Cuban cigar and pacing in a large, cluttered studio here, surrounded by a collection of recently completed inkwash paintings, a series of works that will be presented as part of his first solo exhibition ever held in the United States.

He says in an interview here that he is eager to create something new and powerful for the upcoming show in New York, and in his own playful way the 46-year-old Paris-based artist is suggesting that this is a do-or-die show for him. And so hanging on a back wall in the studio here is a large ink wash self-portrait that shows the artist hanging with a noose around his neck.
