    Wang Keping ( born 1949, Beijing) is a self-taught artist. In 1979, he was a founding member of 'The Stars' (Xing Xing), one of the earliest avant-garde artist groups in contemporary China. In 1984 he moved to Paris, where he continued to create his signature smooth wood sculptures of embracing figures, abstract heads, and female figures. He has exhibited internationally, primarily in Asia and Europe. The Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art in Beijing is currently presenting a major retrospective of the sculptor's works.

    王克平(1949年生於北京)是一個自學成才的藝術家。 1979年,他開創了當代中國最早的前衛藝術團體之一「星星」。 1984年,他移居巴黎繼續專注地創作出以抽像頭像、女性身軀或擁抱中的造型為主的光滑的木雕塑。他的作品曾在世界各地出展,特別是在亞洲和歐洲。北京尤倫斯當代藝術中心先正舉辦藝術家的主要作品回顧展。
