Zhou Jirong

Zhou Jirong

Born: 1962

Hometown: Guizhou

Based in: Beijing

Zhou Jirong is one of China's foremost printmakers. Since graduating from the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in 1987, Zhou Jirong has created his own printmaking language. A key motif of his work is the drastic changes that Chinese cities have been subject to.

Zhou on his work: "The recent urbanisation in China has made cities like Beijing less particularly Chinese and more like any other international city - with all the associated environmental problems, upheavals of social order and overturning of traditional moral principles brought about by such progress. Driving around the ever-expanding city of Beijing, it is hard to recognise its unique characteristics. My relationship to the city has become blurry, hazy. It seems I have placed myself in a dream-world with no special features, no self, no sense of belonging … in a ficticious space...."

He has exhibited across China and Europe. Zhou is currently Vice Professor and Deputy Head of Printmaking at CAFA.
