Chinese artist, Walasse Ting was a critical early printmaker connected with the major avant garde art movements of the 1950's and 1960's, including the CoBra in Europe and the Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art in New York. In 1952 he arrived in Paris, at critical time in modern art, interacting with Pierre Alechinsky, Asger Jorn and Karel Appel. Five years later he arrived in New York and quickly gravitated toward the aesthetic and thinking of the Abstract Expressionists and Pop Artists of the day, including Sam Francis, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. His innovative lithographs utilizing vibrant color is a trademark aesthetic combining the the ideas of Abstract expressionism and Pop Art.
In 1961 his creation of a critical artist's book of his own lithographs and writing called My Shit and My Love was a foundational publication showcasing his unique aesthetic and love of printmaking. DKH is proud to present all the works of this very early modern art historical work.
