Stencil Prints by Yu Ping and Ren Ping

Mr. Yu Ping and Ms. Ren Ping were both born in Shandong Province in China. The couple are folk artists, accomplished in paper-cuts and stencil prints creations.

Stencil printing is made using stencils. In this type of printing, one makes an ink or paint impression by using a cut template (made of cardboard, polymer board, vinyl or plastic sheets). The artists can then apply multiple templates using different colors to create chromatically rich patterns and designs. Stencil printing has long been associated with the widespread textile and dying industry in Shandong Province.

The stencil prints by Yu Ping and Ren Ping displayed here are from the HKUST Library Collection. They were shown in the exhibitions at the Library in 2003 and 2006.
