Wang Tiande
In addition to being a talented artist, Wang Tiande (born 1960 Shanghai, China, currently living in Shanghai) is also a professor at Arts Education Centre of Fudan University in Shanghai, and a Ph.D in Calligraphy from the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou.

Wang graduated from the Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts in 1981 and the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts (now called the China Academy of Art) in Hangzhou in 1988. He created abstract ink paintings and installations in the early 1990s. "Ink Banquet" (1996, ink installation) is in the collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art. His "Chinese Clothes Series" of the late 1990s depict Chinese robe shapes painted in ink with landscape patterns. It is here that he first experimented with burn marks: the paper has been crumpled, creased, burned, patched, splashed. Wang Tiande's "burnt" creativity exploration continued in the form of real Chinese robes in silk with burn marks (2004), and digital photograph "Gu Shan" (2006).

In total he has exhibited in more than 100 solo and group shows around the world, including USA, Canada, Mexico, UK, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Ireland, Russia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan and Hong Kong. His works have been collected by important museums such as British Museum, London; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Montreal Museum of Art; National Art Museum of China, Beijing; Shanghai Art Museum; Guangdong Art Museum; Shenzhen Art Museum, and Hong Kong Museum of Art.
