Zhang Yunyao


Born in Shanghai, where he still lives today, Zhang Yunyao’s artworks are representative of the relationships between the narrative, image, and the surrealistic. They have expanded to embrace medical science, astronomy, history and many other fields, all of which feature "beauty in a morbid state, or from the dark side of society”. 

While he believes in the most fundamental principles of painting, Yunyao’s recent creations have included real articles that are are combined to break the limitation and iniquity of two-dimensional painting.

“Through my creation and exploration I try to show my thinking towards the basic elements of painting and in my installations, by including ready-made objects I attempt to show the subtle connections or clues between image and object.”
