YI Ling

Born in: 1961



Born in 1961 in Shanghai, Yi Ling is a surprising artist. He has never had any special training and his artistic journey has its origins in his passion for the arts.

In 1983, having the desire to discover and to investigate different artforms, he went on a tour of China by bicycle. He made films and paintings in his search of "folk art". In 1990, he became an independent artist in Beijing.

His compositions contain a writing that can be linked to his travel and to architecture, reminding of the work of a cartographer. But Yi Ling?s works don?t have just one meaning. The images he uses are concrete but have a blurry effect brought indirectly by his writing. Once we understand them, his paintings reveal women, teapots, erotic scenes, the Olympic Games, and a whole series of small details that delight our eyes and our soul.
