  • Biography

    Born in Shanghai in 1983, I live in Paris since 2000. As a full-time artist, I seek inspiration throughout the world but Paris is my main place of creation.

    Shanghai + Paris,two cities of light where life and creation are bubbling. Culture shock. The artist-observer seeks to understand his environment and his specificities.

    Shanghai, a city in full economic boom that is constantly changing. In spite of my doubts, I absorb the culture, the architecture and the art that are offered to me.

    Paris, by a game of mirror, helps me to analyze the questions that appeared to me when I was in China and to try to find a "truth".

    Photography allows me to record the inner world that hides behind moments of daily life of the inhabitants. It is also what nourishes my inspiration in painting. Figurative and abstract, my works are reflections of myself, which I hope help those who look at them reflect on their lives.

    Self-taught, I was trained by my father, an artist who has been creating and collecting art works for more than 30 years. His advice on technical issues and his reflections on art accompanied me with my first drawings of children to today, and he also passed on to me a new family technique: painting on animal skin.

    Event: Inner Perception

    Dates: June 15, 2017 - July 31, 2017

    Venue: PARIS, Galerie New Image, 31ter rue des Tournelles, 75003 Paris , France

    Have you ever tried to taste with touch, listen with your eyes, admire with your ears, in short, to swap your senses? For example, if I attribute a color to musical instruments: emerald green for the trumpet, earth for the clarinet, red for the violin. The sounds of each instrument, with their palette ranging from the sharpest to the lowest, would be transformed simultaneously into colors. The composition would naturally freeze on a visual support and this imaginary picture could tell stories very different from those behind the piece of music.
    Everyone has their own perception, so what is the right feeling? Basically, the answer is that there is no answer. This is the essence of feeling, but also the importance of its existence. This exhibition aims to share my sensations. And feel yours.

    Event: DANGER DIVIN, ARTWORKS ON ANIMAL SKINS

    Dates: April 1, 2017 - April 30, 2017

    Venue: PARIS, Libraire Jousseaume (since 1826 ), 45-46-47 Galerie Vivienne, 75002 Paris

    Animal skin has long been used for fabricating daily necessities. However, our knowledge about
    using it as a paintings material is limited in some traditional stories and ancient folk art.

    Animal skin is an organic material. Its characteristics make it quite hard for artists to create smooth silhouettes. Maxence uses special artistic techniques that enable the skin to transform into a perfect material for painting, presenting almost an illusion of photographs and a distinct texture. The fact that every piece of skin is unique makes the creation process much more difficult than creating paintings with normal materials. However, it offers originality, rareness and impossibility of copying.

    He inherits this traditional family technique from his father, MA Fuliang, an artist who has been living in Paris for about 30 years.

    I want to capture the worrisome changes, the anguish that stems from the doubts on the world’s future . . .

    Event: DANGER DIVIN

    Dates: Jan. 2, 2017 - Jan. 14, 2017

    Venue: PARIS, Galerie Monod, 16 rue d'Ouessant Paris 75015

    I want to capture the worrisome changes, the anguish that stems from the doubts on the world’s future.

    I use drawings to depict these moments of the troubled epoch we live in. In creating unstable compositions, I try to find a relative harmony. This sensation of unstability comes from the unexpected, due to the impermanence of things.

    The series presented here is inspired by Chinese landscapes. They show the changes occuring in China and these changes fill me with a sense of unease.

    This series can help one to reflect on this evolution and to anticipate the future of China and maybe even the world’s future.

    For me, it also serves as a link between the past and the future, after my childhood in China and my present life in France.
