This catalogue has been published to accompany Aktis's 2016 exhibition CHINA BLACK. The exhibition is dedicated to two of the most influential Chinese émigré artists of the 20th century, Zao Wou-Ki and Wang Keping.
Reproduced in this publication are 10 Chinese ink paintings by the renowned Zao Wou-Ki, the greatest Chinese artist of the lyrical abstraction movement. The works range from 1950 through to the year 2000, providing a fascinating insight into the span of Zao's artistic practice. Aktis Gallery's exhibition showcased these ink paintings alongside a group of 16 sculptures by the exceptional contemporary sculptor Wang Keping, which also figure in the catalogue.
