Ju Ming


Ju Ming was born in Miaoli, Taiwan. His is a modern art sculptor with autonym as Zhu Chuantai.

15-year-old Ju Ming started his carving career with the engraver Li Jinchuan as a teacher. After three years and four months of learning traditional skills, he worked as a carving master in various locations, accumulating carving experience. During this period he created "A Girl Playing Sand", which became one of his most famous works in the future.

At the age of 30, Ju Ming studied from Yang Yingfeng and began to enter the field of art creation - a turning point in his life. Yang Yingfeng's creation focuses on spirituality and his creative concept of preserving essence has deeply influenced Ju Ming's creative path. Under the advice of his teacher Yang Yingfeng, Ju Ming started to study Tai Chi.

During this process, Ju Ming realised the connotation of simplifying "form" and laying emphasis on "spirit", which led him to gradually create the well-known "Tai Chi" series series in the future.

In the early 1980s, Ju Ming made another breakthrough. With the theme of life and freedom, he tried to sculpt a small "Living World" series. In 1989, Ju Ming created a pair of bronze Tai Chi series "Sparring (Harmony)" for the new building of the Bank of China Tower at the invitation of famous Chinese-American architect Ieoh Ming Pei. In 1999, the Ju Ming Art Museum in Jinshan, Taiwan was officially opened.

Since 2007, Ju Ming started to use white colour to interpret the "Living World" series, discarding the rest of the colours, using white to render a more pure sculpture world to see through the essence.

Ju Ming's work combines traditional techniques with the spirit of modern art to develop a unique style that transcended these two parts.
