Zhang Zipiao

Zhang Zipiao (b.1993, Beijing, China) immerses herself in online culture and the observation of common objects in her daily life. Her individual experience under a globalized culture is constantly applied to her works in her trademark playful, disrespectful fashion. Using powerful brushstrokes to approach raw subject matter, Zipiao emphasizes boldness in the expression of vulnerability and innate strength.

Her works are collected by leading Chinese museums including Long Museum and HOW Museum. Zipiao received a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago in 2015. She lives and works in Beijing.
