Artist of the moment……….Wang Keping

 

Wang Keping is a contemporary Chinese artist renown for his modernist sculpture works often with the female form. Wang Keping was born in Beijing, China in the year 1949.

His figures usually have increases focus in the legs, breasts, and butt. I find his figures to be very abstract like the English artist Henry Moore.

Here we view a great interview from 2009. Wang Keping talks about the Chinese art market:

Price range information: Works range from $10,000 to $150,000.

In this clip we view a gallery show featuring his work:

The artist is now based out of Paris, France.

Keping works with bronze occasionally but uses wood for the most part.

The artist was inspired by an artist recently featured here, Constantin Brancusi.
