Ding Yi

Born and currently living in Shanghai, Ding Yi’s practice incorporates sculpture, architecture, painting and spatial installation. He studied at the Shanghai Arts & Crafts Institute and holds a B.F.A from Shanghai University. His work primarily features the symbol ‘+’ and its variant form ‘x’, selected as a synonym of structure, rationality and a pictorial expressiveness that reflects the essence of things.

Ding Yi is a founding member of China’s New Wave art movement. His work has been exhibited extensively within China and internationally, and has been acquired by major institutions.

Ding Yi is represented by ShanghART, Timothy Taylor Gallery, and Galería RGR.
