Huang Yong Ping
Born in 1954 in Xiamen, China, Huang Yong Ping was a French-Chinese artist and one of the most renowned and controversial figures in the Chinese avant-garde art movements in the 1980s. Huang’s works have been exhibited in several prominent museums and exhibitions across the globe over the years.
Huang was the founder of the famous Xiamen Dada, which he created in 1986 with a group of close rebellious artists. His first major exhibition was Magiciens de la Terre at the Centre Pompidou in France. Most of Huang’s work borrowed a leaf from his life as an Eastern artist in the West (France). He died in 2019 in Paris.
