Yan Pei-Ming (b. 1960 in in Shanghai) is a Franco-Chinese painter based in Dijon, France.
He is best known for his immense, and almost exclusively monochrome,
portraits that draw upon Chinese cultural history and Western portraiture tradition.
Some of his most acclaimed portraits depict the figures of Mao Zedong, Bruce Lee and Barack Obama.
In 2003, he gained international recognition at the Venice Biennale.
Six years later, his work was acquisitioned by the Louvre
where he exhibited a collection of portraits that sought to convey
his personal perspective on Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa
