Yan Cheng Wang

Biography from Christie's Hong Kong

Born in the province of Guangdong in 1960, Wang Yancheng studied at the Shandong Fine Arts Academy between 1978 and 1981.  He arrived in France in 1989 for the first time to pursue his artistic journey.  During this period, Wang suffered from poverty and felt homesick in the French capital.  He soon developed his own painterly practice and gained recognition from the art critics.

From 1998, works by Wang Yancheng entered the most prestigious public collections such as the Beijing Fine Arts Museum and the Shenzhen Fine Arts Museum.   He now lives between Paris and Beijing.  He is appraised by both European and Asian collectors and represented by major art galleries in Paris. 

 Bernard Vasseur perfectly describes Wang's ambition: 'He works constantly to create new balances between different colours.  He does not restrain himself by the decoration and the appearance of the piece, he brings us to the most fundamental point, the inside of 'things', as we are situated in the "big band", in the middle of a forceful tragedy with unpredictable outcomes, with anxiety of "black holes", whirlwinds and irregular quakes.'  (Extracted from Edition Cercle d'Art, Collection Découvrons l'Art, Paris, France, 2010.)
