CFCCA continues its relationship with the John Moores Painting Prize (China) through a presentation of work by 2014 prize winner Zheng Haozhong.
Born in 1985, Zheng Haozhong graduated from Beijing’s Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2008. A young rising star, he has already attracted the attention of art institutions and private art collections around the world.
Zheng paints the life surrounding him, providing a refreshing look into the changing landscape of rural China today. Working primarily with oil on canvas, his works give us a fresh take on portraiture. Both lyrical and thoughtful, the artist lets the ideas of space and time play out directly in his paintings.
