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.

Gao Xing-Jian was born in Jiangxi, China, in 1940.  He is a play writer, novelist, painter, director, and now a French citizen.  In 1985, he held a sculpture exhibition with Yin Guang-Zhong.  It was then that Gao started to be noticed by worldwide media.  Gao settled down in Paris since 1988, and later in 1992 received Chelavier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.  His works were selected into XIXe Biennale Internationale des Antiquaires de Louvre (1998).  Gao Xing-Jian's most notable event is probably receiving the 2000 Nobel Prize in Literature.  Works like "Soul Mountain" and "One Man's Bible" made him the first Chinese writer win this prize.  Two years later, he was given the title Chavelier de la Légion d'Honneur.  In his creation, both literary and artistic works possess a strong sense of Zen conception.  In particular, his ink and water paintings deliver that deep voice in one's mind.  Gao's artistic style is no doubt simple but meaningful; in other words, the picture itself speaks much more than the brushwork does.  Between concreteness and abstraction, the black and white scenery is fulfilled with sublime spirituality.
