Wang Huaiqing

Born in Beijing, 1944, Wang entered the Central Academy of Arts and Crafts in 1964 to study interior design. In 1970, during the Cultural Revolution, Wang was assigned to the countryside for 'rehabilitation through labor' where he learned painting under the tutelage of Wu Guan-Zhong.

In 1980, Wang formed the Contemporary Painting Society with his fellow classmates, organized an exhibition at the National Arts Gallery and joined the National Chinese Artists Association. He received a master's degree a year later.

Wang's work has been selected for exhibitions worldwide including the recent major exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, entitled "5000 Years of Chinese Art" and "Art/Basel: Modern Art Exhibition" at the German Embassy in Beijing.
Wang is a First Grade National Artist in Beijing Art Academy; Member of the China Artists Association; Director of China Oil Painting Associatio.
