Step into the serene natural landscapes of Jiangsu province, China. Hailing from the city of Kunshan, Professor Zhang Xing draws rich inspiration for his paintings from the lower reaches of the Yangtze River. Known for his audacious and expressive style in Chinese folk painting, Zhang brings the beauty of birds, flowers and mountains in his hometown to life in bold renderings. In An Art Exhibition by Chinese Artist, Prof. Zhang Xing, he presents a curation of 90 pieces where viewers can explore his contemporary expression of traditional themes.
Professor Zhang Xing was born in 1955 in Kunshan, a city in the coastal province of Jiangsu, in eastern China. He studied the art of painting under the tutelage of Zhang Jixin, a master artist known for his bird-and-flower paintings. Later, Zhang Xing became a disciple of Professor Chen Dayu, a renowned calligrapher and painter. Presently, he serves as Director of the Kunshan Art Academy. In addition, he sits on a number of national and international associations, including the Sino-Japanese Artists Exchange Association, and as an academician in the Art Research Institute of China, the Jiangsu Aesthetic Association of China, and the Chinese Notable Painting & Calligraphy Academy. Though Zhang’s works now hang in galleries, museums, and private collections around the world, he continues to refine his bold, expressive style. As he explores the contemporary expression of traditional themes, he is now forging a new path in Chinese folk painting.
