The practice of Ding Yi encompasses painting, sculpture, spatial installation and architecture. He works primarily with “+”and its variant “x” as formal visual signals, above and against the political and social allegories typical of painting in China. He chose this sign in the second half of the 80s as a synonym of structure, rationality and of a pictorial expressiveness that reflects the essence of things.

Ding Yi has exhibited extensively at various institutions and galleries, among many others, The British Museum (London, 2021); M+ Museum (Hong Kong, 2021); Power Station of Art (Shanghai, 2020); San Francisco MoMA (2018-2019); Solomon R.
