1949

Wang Keping was born in Hebei province, near Beijing, in China.

   

1978

First, he was an actor, then a factory worker and he wrote screenplays.

 

CAs they are always rejected by the censure, he turned to sculpture

 

to express his revolt, and began to use the salvaged wood.

   

 

He joined the group Xingxing, Stars,* first vanguard atistic movement  in China.

   

1979

He participated in the first unauthorised exhibition on the fence of the parc

 

adjoigning the National museum of Beijing. The exhibition was soon repressed

 

by the police

 

His provocative sculptures are noticed by the public, including,

 

Idol representing the face of Mao on the Buddha.

 

Silence, head seeing only one eye, and mouth closed, will be

 

on the front page of the New York Times ( 19.10 1979 ).

   

1980

The group is given the right to expose in the Huafangzai pavillon.

   

1984

La répression revenant, he left China for France. He moved to Paris.  

 

He continued to work in wood according to its natural forms, but  he abandoned

 

subjects of a political nature for a major theme : the female body.

   

1986

First exhibition at the Zurich gallery in Paris

 

Therefore his fame is international: China, USA, Europe, Japan,

 

Taiwan, exhibiting his works.

He lives and works in Paris.
