Ju Ming (b.1938), Taiwan

Living World Series

Sculpture, Painted bronze, 2014
Location:  CapitaGreen Level 1, Singapore


The figures of the Living World Series represent the universal humanity which everyone is a part of. Standing as a group to convey a sense of mass, they also form clusters to give variety in spatial density. The playful portrayal of the figures’ apparels and accessories balances the overall composition, emphasizing the sense of movement from different perspectives, while the shades of colours accentuate the sense of layering. What characters are these ten figures ? A CEO? A gardener? A banker? A secretary? A deliveryman? Yes and no, as people play different roles at different times and at different points of their lives.

Artist’s Biography

Ju Ming was born to a poor rural family. Giving up studies for work, he was encouraged by his father to undertake an apprenticeship under a famous local wood craftsman, Lee Chinchuan. In 1968, Ju undertook another apprenticeship under a significant sculptor and pioneer of the modern art movement in Taiwan, Yuyu Yang. This broadening of Ju's artistic vision marked a turn in his artistic career. He gradually became an internationally renowned sculptor.
