Born in 1980 in Ningbo, China.
Now living and working in Beijing, Zhang graduated from Paris’ renowned Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 2008. Despite his youth, Zhang has already gained international recognition, with several solo shows in Geneva and Paris even before graduation. The most salient characteristic of Zhang’s paintings is their haunting pallor. With a restrained palette of greys and whites, Zhang’s deliberately muted works strike a delicate balance between abstract and representational.
