Biography

Ni worked as a schoolteacher at the Zhoushan Normal School, but was removed for being "too weird".[1] He began painting onto parts of the landscape on the island where he lived in 1987, using chalk, paint, and dye to put marks on objects such as houses, stones, and trees.[1]

By 2008 he was splitting his time between Beijing and Amsterdam.[2]

In 2012 he exhibited in Manifesta 9.
