The artist Walasse Ting

  • Sino-American visual artist and poet; at times belonged to the avant-garde artist group CoBrA.
  • Earlier works count as abstract art, later works as figurative art.
  • Publisher of »One Cent Life«, a portfolio of loose lithographs by 28 different artists.

Walasse Ting was born in Shanghai on 13 October 1929 and was a Chinese-American visual artist and poet.  He studied at the Shanghai Academy of Art and moved to Paris in 1952. Here he surrounded himself with artists such as Karel Appel, Asger Jorn and Pierre Alechinsky. They were all members of the avant-garde artist group CoBrA, founded by Appel, which Walasse also joined. In 1958, when Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art were at their height in the US, he moved to New York City. The influence of both art movements can be seen in his works from this period. Moreover, with their combination of colour splashes and bright colour fields with calligraphic brushstrokes, they are reminiscent of the paintings of the Chinese-French painter Zao Wou-ki.

His works are mostly large-format paintings with large areas of colour, made with Chinese brushes and acrylic. In addition to unclothed women, cats, birds and other animals are among his most frequent motifs. While he was described as an abstract artist in his early works, the majority of his pieces from the mid-1970s onwards can be classified as figurative art.

In addition to painting, Walasse was also a poet and published 13 books during his life. Among them is One Cent Life, published in 1964, a large-format portfolio with a total of 62 loose lithographs by 28 artists, including Karel Appel, Sam Francis, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Mitchell and Andy Warhol. The aim of the portfolio was to simultaneously depict US and French art of the 1960s and to publish his poems, which appeared in it in multi-coloured typography. In 1970, Walasse won the Guggenheim Fellowship for drawing. From 1990 onwards, he lived alternately in New York and Amsterdam. He died on 17.10.2010 in New York City.

Walasse Ting's art is internationally known and appreciated. It is part of collections of various museums, including the Guggenheim Museum (New York), the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Tate Gallery of Modern Art (London), the Centre Pompidou (Paris) and the Hong Kong Museum of Art. Different romanisations of his name, such as Ding Xiongquan or Ting Hsiung-ch'uan, are sometimes used for his works.

Der Künstler Walasse Ting

  • Sino-amerikanischer bildender Künstler und Dichter.
  • Gehörte zeitweise der avantgardistischen Künstlergruppe CoBrA an.
  • Frühere Werke zählen zur abstrakten, spätere zur figurativen Kunst.

Walasse Ting wurde am 13.10.1929 in Shanghai geboren und war ein chinesisch-US-amerikanischer bildender Künstler und Dichter.  Er studierte an der Kunstakademie in Shanghai und zog im Jahre 1952 nach Paris. Hier umgab er sich mit Künstlern wie Karel Appel, Asger Jorn and Pierre Alechinsky. Sie alle waren Mitglieder der von Appel gegründeten, avantgardistischen Künstlergruppe CoBrA, welcher auch Walasse beitrat. Im Jahre 1958, als der abstrakte Expressionismus und die Pop-Art im US-amerikanischen Raum auf ihrem Höhenpunkt waren, zog er nach New York City. In seinen Arbeiten aus diesem Zeitraum ist der Einfluss beider Kunstrichtungen wiederzuerkennen. Zudem erinnern sie mit ihrer Verknüpfung von Farbspritzern und hellen Farbfeldern mit kalligrafischen Pinselstrichen an die Arbeiten des chinesisch-französischen Malers Zao Wou-ki.

Bei seinen Werken handelt es sich meist um mit chinesischen Pinseln und Acryl gefertigte, großformatige Gemälde mit großen Farbflächen. Neben unbekleideten Frauen zählen dabei vor allem Katzen, Vögel und andere Tiere zu seinen häufigsten Motiven. Wird er in seinen anfänglichen Werken noch als abstrakter Künstler beschrieben, lässt sich der Großteil seiner Arbeiten ab Mitte der 70er-Jahre der figurativen Kunst zuordnen.

Neben der Malerei war Walasse auch Dichter und veröffentlichte im Laufe seines Lebens 13 Bücher. Darunter befindet sich das 1964 herausgegebene One Cent Life, ein großformatiges Portfolio mit insgesamt 62 losen Lithografien von 28 Künstlern, unter ihnen Karel Appel, Sam Francis, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Mitchell and Andy Warhol. Ziel des Portfolios war es, gleichzeitig die US-amerikanische und französische Kunst der 1960er Jahre abzubilden und seine Gedichte, die darin in mehrfarbiger Typografie erschienen, zu veröffentlichen. 1970 gewann Walasse das Guggenheim Fellowship für Zeichnen. Ab 1990 lebte er dann wechselweise in New York und Amsterdam. Er starb am 17.10.2010 in New York City.

Walasse Tings Kunst ist international bekannt und geschätzt. Sie ist Teil von Sammlungen verschiedener Museen, darunter das Guggenheim Museum (New York), das Museum of Modern Art (New York), die Tate Gallery of Modern Art (London), das Centre Pompidou (Paris) und das Hong Kong Museum of Art (Hongkong). Für seine Werke werden manchmal verschiedene Romanisierungen seines Namens, wie Ding Xiongquan oder Ting Hsiung-ch'uan, genutzt.
