An introduction to the Beijing-born artist Zao Wou-Ki, a Chinese painter who spent most of his life in Paris, became friends with Miró and Giacometti and bridged the divide between Eastern and Western traditions. As a result, his work is a mix between Asian art and European Avant-Garde.

Wou-Ki means "no limits" in Chinese — a prescient name for an artist who experimented in oil on canvas, ink on paper, lithography, engraving and watercolour, and who embraced different cultural identities without ever being beholden to one.
