About Huang Rui

Huang Rui (b. 1952, Beijing) is one of China’s most highly regarded artists. He is one of the key leaders of The Stars Group (Xing-Xing 星星画会). Established in the late 1970s, The Stars Group initiated some of the first free art expressions in the Post-Mao era bringing together 23 like-minded artists including Wang Keping, Ma Desheng and Ai Wei Wei. They saw themselves as the pinpoints of light in an otherwise endless night, the two Stars exhibitions at last broke the stranglehold of Communist Party orthodoxy and set the stage for the future freedom of artistic expression in China.

Huang Rui is a painter, sculptor and a performance artists, as well as the founder of the 798 Art District in Beijing. Huang Rui’s works have been shown extensively in China and internationally, his “Yin and Yang Ink Book” series was recently exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World” in New York.
