Zhang He  Bio  ·  



With paint like hot lava, the artwork of Zhang He surges onto the canvas - vigorous, bright, undulating colours exploding into abstracted plants and flowers.


The style of Zhang's paintings connect him closely to European expressionism, an association embraced by the artist, who also maintains a close relationship to the traditions of Chinese oil painting. The concept of "Chi" is integral to his work, Chi a part of everything that exists, a life force, a spiritual energy. His bold strokes are gorgeous and seductive, evoking energy and passion, sensuality and angst, adding emotion to his contemporary style.  


Born in Shen Yang, China in 1963, Zhang He now makes his home in Montreal.

Note: It is the custom and philosophy of PRC to show the work of their young artists collectively. There is great competition to be selected for these exhibitions. Until very recently the individual promotion of an individual artist was reserved for the elder masters. The concept of the Western Gallery and solo shows was in large part concentrated in the megalopolis centers such as Shanghai and Hong Kong where the gstarsh and grising starsh were shown. This, also until very recently, predominantly promoted a large slate of Occidental - European and American - artists. This contingent is now being augmented by the oriental voice.
