Wang Dongling
Wang Dongling (Chinese, born 1945) is a leading artist and calligrapher best known for large abstract works that he calls “calligraphic paintings.” Combining poetry and painting, Dongling creates these works through performances in which he translates the text of ancient Chinese verses into gestural interpretations of traditional characters. Defining his work as “abstract ink art,” he creates spaces for considering the inherent creativity of Chinese writing. By employing techniques of performance and relying on the impact of scale, Dongling brings a new freedom to the rigorous art of calligraphy and offers contemporary homage to an ancient practice.
