Hao, Ping (1952 - Present)
Widely exhibited in China, Japan, Europe and the United States, Hao Ping is a visionary of contemporary Chinese printmaking. Born in Yunnan Province in 1952, his prints consider the culture and experience of the ethnic minorities of Southeastern China. Through the use of bold color, geometric composition, and varying levels of abstraction, Hao Ping has a distinct style that reflects that of the Yunnan Art School. He graduated from both Department of Fine Arts of Yunan Art College (1980) and the Printmaking Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts (1986). He was chairman of the Yunan Artists Association. Hao's work can be found in the collections of the China Fine Art Museum, the Asia Pacific Museum (U.S.), and the British Woodcut Foundation.
