Shao Keping (1916-2010) was from Ningbo, Zhejiang Province. He initially trained at the White Swan Painting School in Shanghai. During the Anti-Japanese War, he worked as an art editor with the Nationalities' Daily (Minzu ribao, 民族日报) in Zhejiang and started to work on woodcuts, a genre for which he is best known. After the founding of the People's Republic, he worked in the Cultural Bureau in Shanghai and the Shanghai Art Press.
