The Interview

Walasse Ting endured poverty as a struggling young artist in Paris but became one of the world's most acclaimed painters.

Paved with gold

He might have begun by painting on pavements, but it was not long before Walasse Ting began to charge for his work. The Wuxi-born New York-resident artist is now - thanks to mass production of posters - one of China's most easily recognisable artists.

Walasse Ting was wearing his own painting. The Chinese-born American artist, best known for his exuberantly bright watercolours, was dressed in a blue silk suit decorated with startlingly large flowers.
