Huang Yong Ping

Born in 1954, in Xiamen (China)

Lives and works in Ivry-sur-Seine (France)

A major figure of the Chinese avant-garde and the founder of the Xiamen Dada movement in 1986, Huang Yong Ping rose to international prominence through the "Magiciens de la Terre" exhibition held in Paris in 1989. 

At the boundary between East and West, his installations and sculptures combine Buddhist and Taoist symbols, and references to Christianity, the history of art and Western philosophy. Often using animals in his works, both living and stuffed, he creates allegories about society, the future and the hybridisation of identities.
