Born in 1968 in Shanghai, China.
Having graduated from Shanghai Arts & Crafts Institute in 1986, Fang left for Japan to pursue his passion for painting but instead became an antiques dealer for 15 years. Upon returning to Shanghai, he set up a fine art printing studio, producing prints for many of China’s leading artists, including Zhang Huan, Zeng Fanzhi and Wang Guangyi. Indeed, Fang was a key collaborator in Zhang Huan’s ash paintings, big Buddha sculptures and woodcut prints. Having never given up his true passion, Fang returned to full time painting in 2008. His first solo exhibition took place at the Shanghai Gallery of Art in 2012.
