Wang Guangle

Wang Guangle is a Chinese contemporary artist born in 1976 in Fujian province, China. He graduated in 2000 from the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute at Chongqing.

Wang Guangle is known for his minimalist monochrome painting practice. He uses a layering technique of colors, applying many layers of acrylic paint on the canvas to create thick and textured surfaces that capture light and shadow. These paintings create a hypnotic effect, playing with notions of depth and surface.

Wang Guangle has participated in many national and international exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale in 2013 and the Lyon Biennale in 2017. His works are part of the permanent collections of many museums and institutions, including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon.

Throughout his career, Wang Guangle has received several prestigious awards, such as the Montblanc Artist Award in 2015 and the China Artist of the Year Award in 2016. He is now considered one of the most influential contemporary artists of his generation in China and worldwide.
