Zeng Fanzhi born 1964 in Wuhan, Hubei is a contemporary Chinese artist based in Beijing. From the earliest stages of his career, Zeng Fanzhi’s paintings have been marked by their emotional directness, the artist’s intuitive psychological sense, and his carefully calibrated expressionistic technique.
Zeng is an icon in the art world and his career provides an analogy for the development of modern Chinese art – perhaps even Chinese society – from the utilitarian social realism of his childhood during the cultural revolution to the giddy heights of global art fairs and seven-figure price tags.via
