He has a strong academic foundation that was developed from a young age in China. Once Zhang was introduced to the California Funk Art Movement, his pieces began developing dynamically; now, his larger than life sculptures combine both historical references and contemporary scenes to carry social and political messages.
With a sense of humor incorporated into his art, Zhang’s art is powerful, beautiful, and very spiritual. Zhang is one of the leading sculptors in the new generation of ceramic artists in California.
