Lives and Works: Beijing
A graduate of the Ceramic Department of the National Academy of Fine Art, Hangzhou, Zhao Meng worked for many years as an artist in residence at Harvard University, before returning to Hangzhou to take over executive direction for the Hangzhou Ceramic Arts Biennale, the premier ceramic event in the country. Today, working between the two continents, Zhao is determined to honour tradition, not by repeating it, but by expanding upon it. With each sculptural creation, Zhao Meng seeks to expand the definition of ceramic art by experimenting with and pushing the capabilities of the material, as well as revitalizing classical forms and traditional aesthetic sensibilities for contemporary audiences. His works are currently in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; the National Academy of Fine Arts, Hangzhou; the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, Korea; the Southern Song Dynasty Official Kiln Museum, Hangzhou; the Taipei County Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taiwan, and in major private collections around the world.
