  • “Mixing together Chinese and Western art is something that feels very natural to me.” —Ye Linghan

    Born in 1985, Beijing-based artist Ye Linghan graduated from the prestigious China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, in 2009, where he studied traditional mural painting and drawing. Part of the post-1980s generation of artists who refuse to be defined by a signature style or a particular medium, he has already produced a remarkable interdisciplinary body of work including videos, animations, installations, works on paper and paintings.


    Investigating the impact of virtual reality and the ubiquity of the Internet on human behaviour, Ye Linghan’s ‘LUCY’ series projects a future reality (or Year One of Artificial Intelligence) through its eponymous faceless protagonist, who roams a futuristic, chimerical universe filled with neon fauna.


    Ye Linghan’s works have been widely collected and exhibited at distinguished institutions and galleries, including Shanghai’s K11 Art Museum, MOCA Shanghai, Shenzhen OCT Art Terminal, Shanghai’s Mingsheng Art Museum and Ben Brown Fine Arts in both London and Hong Kong.
