Ju Ming

b.1938

Born in Miaoli, Taiwan, Ju Ming began his sculptural career as a woodcarver under the apprenticeship of Buddhist statuary craftsman Lee Chin-chuan. After completing his apprenticeship, Ju Ming established his own studio and began a thriving business creating traditional folk art. Throughout this period he began experimenting with contemporary subjects moving to a new direction after seeking the guidance of modern sculptor Yuyu Yang.

Building on his training as a woodcarver, Ju Ming now works with a variety of mediums, including bronze, wood, Styrofoam, ceramic and stainless steel. In 1976, Ju Ming began his sculpting works on the theme of Taichi, the first artist to do so. These works convey dynamic movement and rugged carving combined with a feeling of calm strength and stability.

Hongkong Land purchased this large figure, engaged in the classic Taichi pose, in 1986.
