About Nie Jian Bing

Nie Jian Bing

(b.1968, Nanjing, China) Nie Jian Bing challenges our cultural ideas of East and West. Using Renaissance portraiture, Bing superimposes an artist’s copy grid, acupuncture meridians and Chinese characters on the figure. The artwork offers a twist on classic portraiture by challenging how we see the other. Trained in France, Nie Jian Bing divides his time between Montréal, Paris and China. His work is held in public and private collections in Canada and abroad.
