Musk Ming

Revolutionary Peking Opera – “Tiger Mountain”

Revolutionary Peking Opera – “Tiger Mountain”

Material: acrylic on canvasboard
Size: 100 x 80 cm

Musk Ming is a Berlin based Chinese artist. "Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy" is a Peking opera play and one of the eight model plays allowed during the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
Musk Ming is a Berlin-based Chinese artist who has carved out his own way of combining traditional Chinese art with contemporary techniques and Western aesthetics. The absence of sexuality in Chinese art and the relatively open approach in the West are brought to the fore in his paintings. Beyond the nudity, however, the focus is always on the relationship between human, society and nature. In the run-up to the Beijing Olympics in 2008, Musk Ming’s painting Go West, which portrays a group of athletes, was selected for the official Olympic Fine Arts exhibition. But shortly before the show’s opening, the painting was removed by the Chinese authority on grounds of "unsuitability" of the content. Musk Ming’s works have been exhibited in galleries in Berlin, Cologne, Utrecht, Amsterdam, Mallorca, Essen, Groningen, Antwerp, Bangkok, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Beijing and Chiang Mai. Some of his paintings are held as private collections in Europe, Asia, North America, Australia and South Africa.
