Chai Yiming, born in Harbin in 1965. After graduating from the Shanghai Business Academy in 1987, attended Huashan Art School. Currently works and lives in Shanghai. He has participated in many solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Germany, Belgium, Italy, and Spain. He has also exhibited in the Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art, the Toronto Art Museum, the Chongqing Youth Art Biennale, as well as several well-known art galleries.
Whilst Chai Yiming is predominantly influenced by traditional Oriental aesthetics and closely follows the Chinese philosophy of Buddism and Taoism, he is simultaneously fascinated with Western literature, poetry, film and fine art. This has ultimately led to the evolution of his unique style of painting. His works are not planned, but instead composed of random occurrences reflecting his inner self expression. In his own words, “random, chaotic, confusion” regarding the Western physics writings of Chaos Theory, corresponds to the Book of Changes stating “orderly disorder, random inevitable".
