Wang Yuping


B.1962  Beijing, China

Lives and works in Beijing, China


Wang Yuping entered the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing, China in 1983. Since he graduated in 1989, he has been teaching in the Oil Painting Department of CAFA. He is known for his gritty, comic book style portraits of urban life in China.

The creative source of artist Wang Yuping is an expression on the basis of an experience in survival, the selection of subject matter focuses on the description of the plot of reality, and of an excellent “frosty coquettish” and “humorous” performance. He often uses a sketching technique, focusing on trifles and the state of ordinary people, to record, clip and transform the fragments, dispelling and releasing his experience, memory, hobbies and interests.


In 1997, he participated in the 47th Venice Biennial. His works have exhibited in various notable exhibitions in China and abroad and have been collected by the National Art Museum of China. In 2017, Wang Yuping had a solo exhibition "Jingshan Hill St." at Tang Contemporary Art Beijing.
