The Artist Says:


Chris was born in the 60's, in Guangdong Province, China.

In his youth Chris was trained in calligraphy during his early school years; and in his heart became a lifetime lover of Chinese traditional art. Later, he turned to Chinese Ink and Wash painting with Brush only, resumed his calligraphy, and came to the U.S. after college.

Starting to paint at a rather late age, he was heavily influenced by Chinese traditional painters who stressed the importance of subjective expression and a strong sense of individuality... painting ones feelings and mood rather than painting realistically.

Chris Zhang focuses mainly on fish, flowers and landscapes.

He uses one stroke, two colors, and economy of lines for the artwork to capture the spirit of the natural subjects that gives the viewer some insight into the elegance of tradtional Chinese art.
