Zhang Wen, born in 1988 in Henan province, graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Chinese Ink Faculty in 2012 and a post-graduate degree at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Chinese Ink faculty under the supervision of Liu Qing He in June 2016.
Zhang Wen’s brushstrokes are simple and forthright, a style that amplifies her narrative about childhood innocence. Her use of colour, tonal variation and colour saturation is reminiscent of traditional Chinese ink, and her exceptional composition and perspective reveals an uncommon intelligence. Her art has the distinctive feel and atmosphere of Chinese ink, yet at the same time is distinctive with her own intimately personal and experimental language.
Zhang Wen received several awards in 2009, 2011 and 2014 from the Central Academy of Fine Arts and her works are collected by the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA).
