Bingyi received her B.A. from Mount Holyoke College, her M. A. from Yale University and a Doctorate in Art History from Yale University in 2005. Her dissertation entitled “Rereading Mawangdui, From Chu to Han” was ranked the sixth most read dissertation by ProQuest amongst 70,000 dissertations in 2006.
Although Bingyi has received little formal training in the visual arts, she began showing her paintings in 2007, and is best known for creating large-scale oil-based landscapes that reference Chinese history and her personal experiences; they have been described by critic Jonathan Goodman as “epic” in scale. She also creates installation art and woodcut prints. She is represented in New York by Max Protetch Gallery.
