  • About the Artist

Hsiao Chin was born in Shanghai in 1935. After his first art studies, in 1956 he participated in the founding of the Ton-Fan group, which brings together painters of abstract trends. Thanks to a scholarship instituted by the Spanish government he went to Madrid and Barcelona, where in 1957 he held his first solo show and a group show dedicated to the Ton-Fan group. At the end of the fifties he began his reflection on the Taoist philosophy; he settled in Milan, where he began to exhibit regularly at Giorgio Marconi's. In 1961, together with Antonio Calderara he founded the Punto movement, to which members of the international avant-garde were added. His research blends elements of Eastern culture and spirituality with a deep knowledge of Western artistic modernity. After long stays in London, Paris and New York, he returned to Milan in 1971 and began teaching (first at the European Institute of Design, then at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts). In 1988 Studio Marconi dedicated a first major retrospective to him. The following year he began the series Dalla primavera di Beijing al massacro di Tienanmen, inspired by the dramatic events of 1989, while the cycle La Grande Soglia, which he produced from 1990-91, was born from a reflection on life and death after the death of his daughter Samantha. Among the main exhibitions of recent years are the retrospectives of Taipei (1995), Taichung (1996), the great anthological exhibition of 2002 in Milan at Spazio Oberdan, Lattuada Arte, Giò Marconi and the Mudima Foundation, and in 2006 the exhibition at the National Art Museum in Beijing.
