Born in 1960 in Shanghai (People's Republic of China), lives and works in Dijon. Ming's self-portraits, like his monumental portraits of Mao or his dark landscapes, proceed from "disfiguration". The artist reduces the likeness to a spectral envelope through an expressive and energetic technique and an economy of colour - usually black and white. His role as a painter is not to deliver a truth of gesture or emotion, but a "hypothesis".
