Born in China in 1943, David Diao emigrated in 1949 to Hong Kong, then to the United States where he studied and had early success with his large abstract and colorful paintings. Diao has been based in New York since the late 1960s.

He quickly worked with major galleries (Leo Castelli, Paula Cooper), and obtained a teaching position in the famous artist training program at the Whitney Museum in New York.

After a voluntary break in his career at the turn of the 1980s, he returned to the international scene in 1984 with a more critical painting, openly using already existing images, such as works by other artists, archival documents, photographs. historical ...

Now recognized as one of the main figures of conceptual abstraction and a postpop citation art, he also works with documents that relate to his own artistic career as well as his own story of Chinese exile.
