Zhangyu (張羽)

Hometown: Tianjin

Lives and Works: Beijing

 

Born in Tianjin, China, Zhang Yu is a pioneering figure in China's experimental ink painting movement that began in the 1980s. Over the course of his career that has evolved from decade to decade, he has sought to bridge disparate aesthetic traditions across time and culture by mining the potential of the ink medium in a nonfigurative style. Always true to his own art ideals, Zhang Yu has maintained an independent identity in his pursuit of ink art innovation, an identity epitomized by his Fingerprint (1991, 2001-2014) series. The artist has had numerous solo shows around the world and his works can be found in the public collections of the Metropolitan Museum, New York, the Hong Kong Art Museum, Hong Kong, the Benetton Museum, Venice, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp, the Red Mansion Foundation, London, the National Art Museum of China, Beijing, among others.
