biography

Born in 1949, near Beijing, Wang Keping is one of the founders of contemporary Chinese art, mainly due to the key role he played during the cultural revolution in China, in the 1970s, which led to him leaving for France in 1984.

Since then, he has developed a masterful body of work, which explores all that wood can offer and is considered, internationally, to be one of the most important contributions made to contemporary sculpture.
