HUANG Gang 黃鋼 (B.1961)
Huang Gang was born in Beijing in 1961. His interest in the arts began at a young age when he began his studies of traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy. He graduated from The Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1984 and in 1991 attained his Master's degree in Fine Arts from the same institution. Huang Gang's lifespan has made him a witness to China's transition from the chaos of the Cultural Revolution to its embrace of Engagement and Commercialism. His sculptures reimagine his childhood memories of "Red Culture" and provoke a search for meaning by contrasting past and present.
