About

Xu Hualing 徐华翎

Born in Harbin, Heilongjiang province of China in 1975, Xu Hualing graduated with a Bachelor's degree and a Master’s degree in Chinese Painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA), Beijing, in 2000 and 2003 respectively. From 2003 to 2012, she taught at the Beijing University of Technology, Art & Design College. She currently lives in Beijing and teaches in the department of Chinese Painting at CAFA.

Xu Hualing has established herself at the heart of the Chinese contemporary Ink Art avant-garde with works that incorporate the delicate “feminism” of the traditional Chinese ideal into renderings of adolescense in the full flood of complex emotion. Her outstanding technical and aesthetic gifts are now also in evidence as a teacher at the elite art school in Beijing, the Central Academy.
