A Ge (Simplified Chinese: 阿鸽; Hanyu Pinyin: Ā Gē) (born 1948) is a Chinese print artist from Liangshan in Sichuan Province and is a member of the Yi people ethnic minority.


Per government policy towards ethnic minorities, A Ge was recruited at age twelve to attend the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute and was encouraged to create art to publicize Yi minority culture and help development.[1]

In 1964 she graduated from the national minority class at the Sichuan branch of the China Artists Association.[2] She is married to Xu Kuang.


A Ge is a Grade 1 National Artist, a member of the China Artists Association and the Chinese Engravers Association, and is chairman of the Sichuan Artists Association.[3][4] Her works have been collected by the British Museum in London.[5]
