Walasse Ting (born 1929) is a New York based visual artist. His colorful paintings have attracted critical admiration and a popular following. Common subjects include nude women and cats, birds and other animals.

He was born in Shanghai in 1929. He left China in 1946 and lived for a while in Hong Kong, then settling in Paris in 1952. Here he associated with artists such as Karel Appel, Asger Jorn, and Pierre Alechinsky, members of the avant-garde group, COBRA.

In 1957 he moved to America, and settled New York where his work was influenced by pop art and abstract expressionism. He began primarily as an abstact artist, but the bulk of his work since the mid- 1970's has been described as popular figuratism, with broad areas of color painted with a Chinese brush and acrylic paint.

He lived in Amsterdam in the 1990s, but moved between there and New York.

As a poet as well as painter, he is the author of 13 books, including "One Cent Life" (E.W Kornfeld, 1964) a portfolio of 62 original lithographs by 28 artists, including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Tom Wesselmann, James Rosenquist, Asger Jorn, Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel,Joan Mitchell and Sam Francis.

He won the Guggenheim Fellowship Award (for Drawing) in 1970

His works are in the permanent collections of many museums worldwide, including The Guggenheim Museum and MoMa in NY, The Chicago Art Institute, The Tate Gallery, London, Centre Pompidou, Paris, The Hong Kong Museum of Art, among others.

He is sometimes referred to by his Chinese name "丁雄泉" or its various romanizations : Ding Xiongquan or Ting Hsiung-ch'uan.
