Wang Ke-Ping was born in Beijing in 1949. He participated in “Stars
Group” from 1979, and then became a live member. He has moved to France
since 1984 till now.
Wang’s art career has kept close to wooden
sculpture. In his early creation, he made those feelings of depression
and resentment be shown in eccentric ways, resulting in great shock.
Moreover, it is also a kind of modern design of anti-bureaucratic
realism that initiates art’s modernization.
In 1984, Wang settled in
France and then suddenly went without intervention and goals to
oppose. Wang did not know where to restart create; nonetheless, he
tried to build up his personal style. Afterwards, institutes including
Government of Paris, Olympic Park in Seoul, and National Taiwan Museum
of Fine Arts all have Wang’s collections. He later on hold several solo
exhibitions in New York, Paris, London, and alike. This reflects that
moving to France enables Wang Ke-Ping to face his works with a stricter
and more inward attitude. Wang has been influenced a lot by Chinese
philosophical aesthetics, so his creation in general tends to be more
Eastern style. He chooses wood as material to present simplicity and
nature of human.
