Walasse Ting (1929-2010) was an accomplished painter, poet and publisher. 

During his lifetime he was a both a friend and colleague of many of the most important avant-garde painters, in both New York City and Europe.

Ting moved to Paris in 1952 and was affiliated with the members of Cobra, notably Pierre Alechinsky and Karel Appel

In 1957 Ting moved to New York City. He would become a close friend of Sam Francis. It is easy to see the influence of both artists' on the other's work. (Click here to see an abstract work by Ting that demonstrates the synergy between him and Sam Francis)

In the 1970's his work became increasingly figurative and was influenced by traditional Chinese painting methods and to a lesser degree subject matter. His aesthetic, highly stylized and dedicated to exuberant pastels and jewel tones, is instantly recognized for its combination of Chinese stylings and expressionism. While Ting has created both totally abstract and directly figurative works, such as this depiction of flowers, the consistent element is the feeling of joy in his creations.
