Born in Shanghai, Ting found fame in Paris — where he became part of the CoBrA avant-garde art movement — and then New York, which was then flourishing under the Abstract Expressionist and Pop periods. His style was similarly geographically fluid, a vibrant mashup of both East and West. But there’s also a tinge of melancholy to his paintings, despite the spirited vigor of the palette, adding an extra meditative layer to his works.
