Michael Cavayero is a Beijing and New York-based artist and scholar. After completing a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from New York University in 2009, he obtained a master’s (2015) and a PhD (conferred in 2020) in Fine Arts (Chinese Art) from the China Academy of Art. He is now an Assistant Professor in the School of Arts at Peking University and a Research Fellow at Peking University’s Research Centre for Aesthetics and Aesthetic Education. Cavayero’s work explores the complex relationship between religion and art. His background as a painter encompasses a long-term exploration of Western and non-Western traditions complemented by his research examining cultural connections along the Silk Roads, including foreign sources’ influence on Chinese art and aesthetics in the medieval period. Since the early 2000s, his work has been exhibited and included in public and private collections internationally in North America, Europe, and Asia.
