Tsai Hsia-Ling (蔡遐齢) was born in China in 1936.

He is part of the Ton-Fan group, a movement of pioneering abstract artists in China, Europe and the U.S., also known as Société de Peinture de l’Orient. It’s a Taiwanese avant-garde art movement founded in Taipei by Ho-Kan in 1956. The group’s formation played an important role in the development of Taiwanese art and the history of 20th-century Chinese art.

He and Hsiao Chin were the first Chinese artists who were also active in Italy in the post-World War II period. Little is known about this artist’s recent history and his works are difficult to find on the market.
