1949

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

   

1978

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

 

As 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 park fence

 

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

 

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 bee on the front page of

  The New York Times ( 19.10 1979 ).
   

1980

The group was allowed to exhibit in the Huafangzai Pavilion.

   

1984

As the repression returned, he left China for France. He settled in Paris.

   
 

He continued to work with wood, following its natural forms, but he abandoned

 

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

   

1986

First exhibition at the Zurich gallery in Paris

   
 

From then on, his reputation became international: China, United States,Europe,

 

Japan,Taiwan, exhibited his works.

He lives and works in Paris  France.
