Self-taught artist Walasse Ting was born in Wuxi, Jiangsu, China, but raised in Shanghai, where he briefly attended the Shanghai Art Academy. He moved to Paris in 1952 where he became acquainted with members of the avant-garde group CoBrA, including artists such as Karel Appel, Asger Jorn, and Pierre Alechinsky. Influenced by the modernist Western movements he encountered in Paris as well as traditional Chinese ink painting, Walasse Ting developed his unique, colorful style in Paris before moving to New York in 1958. The artist was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship Award for Drawing in 1970, along with numerous exhibitions and collections in museums world-wide. After suffering a stroke in 2002, Walasse Ting spent the remainder of his life in the Netherlands until his death in 2010.
