Beibang (born in 1982) is an illustrator who lives and works in Shanghai, and is an active member of the art scenes in both Shanghai and Beijing . Once a top class cutting-edge designer, he is a pioneer in the illustration field in China. His complex yet delicate drawing style has made him a distinct icon among the post-80s’ generation of emerging artists. His works construct a unique aesthetics of line art, which gradually extracts the unadorned oriental characters. He is devoted to making black and white line art, and has remained loyal to this drawing style over the years. In today’s commercialized, diversified society, such persistence and determination are rare and precious. During the summer of 2011, the four artists Bei Bang, Liu Zheng, Zhu Jingyi, and Li Qing proposed the “Line-ism” style of painting. It is mainly composed of lines and focuses on the expression of the lines themselves to create a unique line-based aesthetic. For the past two years, a number of Line-ism art exhibitions have been held and numerous line body fans have learned and encouraged each other through this platform. Line body artist Bei Bang, born in the late 1980s, is the founder of line body art and is the most widely recognized figure in the movement.
