Published by Ullens Center for Contemporary Art.
Edited by Karen Marta. Text by Philip Tinari, Jeffrey Deitch, Christina Yu Yu, Liu Housheng, Christopher R. Leighton, Shan Yuejin, Philippe Garner, Michael Chow. Preface by May Xue, Gong Yan.

Michael Chow, born Zhou Yinghua in Shanghai in 1939, was abruptly uprooted to England at the age of 13, where he lost his family and name. Voice for My Father illuminates Chow's long journey, celebrating both father--Beijing opera star Zhou Xinfang--and son, the artist and legendary restaurateur, who has recently made a triumphant return to painting. Their stories are told through rare archival images and personal portraits by such artists as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Urs Fischer, Julian Schnabel and Andy Warhol. Published on the occasion of Chow's first exhibition in China, held at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, and the Power Station of Art, Shanghai, on the 120th anniversary of his father's birth, this book affords a close look at Chow's artistic practice and persona.

Michael Chow: Recipe for a PainterMichael Chow: Recipe for a Painter

Published by Pearl Lam Galleries.
Text by Donatien Grau, James Lawrence. Interview by Jeffrey Deitch.

Michael Chow was born Zhou Yinghua in Shanghai, China, in 1939. At the age of 13 he was abruptly uprooted to England, where he where he lost everything familiar to him; his family, culture and even his name. He studied art, subsequently working as a painter for ten years before deciding to take a break and open his first restaurant, Mr Chow, in Knightsbridge, London, in 1968. The restaurant became an international success, spawning locations around the world, and Chow also thrived in the realm of interior design, from specialty boutiques for Giorgio Armani to his own restaurants and his home in Los Angeles. Chow has continued to be involved in all walks of creativity from architecture and theater to film. After a 50-year sabbatical, in 2012, encouraged by Jeffrey Deitch, Chow picked up the brush again and returned to his true passion. This volume documents his return to painting.
