1962 Born in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province
Currently works and lives in New York, U.S.A.
Following Wang’s graduation in 1985 from the Chinese Department of Shanghai’s Fudan University, where he majored in classical literature, he worked for over a decade as an editor, director and producer at China Central Television in Beijing. He has devoted himself full-time to painting and calligraphy since his move to New York in 1996. The imaginary landscapes Wang creates using experimental techniques, tools and media in concert with traditional brushwork, are often composed in dialogue with Chinese classical themes.
Wang’s calligraphy and paintings have been exhibited in China, including at the Beijing Art Museum and Today Art Museum in Beijing, Xuhui Art Museum in Shanghai and Shanxi Museum in Taiyuan and, in New York, at the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, China Institute in America, The Baltimore Museum of Art and Princeton Art Museum. Wang has lectured and given demonstrations on Chinese art and culture at universities and museums. His paintings and calligraphy are held in museum and private collections.
