Awesome Contemporary Chinese Art – Zhong Biao: China (10 photos)

Aside from the obvious beauty displayed in Zhong Biao's paintings, there's something else that really draws me in. His pieces have such depth and leave me with a curiosity of what is really going on… “I don't want to force my own understanding or interpretation of my paintings on the audience. The mixture of images within each of my paintings is like a combination of controversial elements in life. We don't have to understand everything we see in each painting. Like life, we cannot understand everything that we have seen or experienced. In my paintings, Eastern and Western, historical and modern opposites coexist, reflecting the reality of today's lifestyle.” -Zhong Biao Zhong was born in Chongqing, Sichuan Province, China in 1968. In 1987, he studied at Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts (now China Academy of Fine Arts) in Hangzhou, China and has arguably since become the most famous contemporary Chinese artist in the world.
