Zheng Chongbin (郑重宾)

Born in Shanghai, Zheng Chongbin is known for his radical reconceptualization of the forms and materials of Chinese painting. A student and teacher of Chinese figure painting at the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, in the 1980s, Zheng later moved to the US and received an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1991. Today, splitting his time between the two countries, Zheng reveals the influences of both artistic traditions in his work. Within the confines of a black and white palette, Zheng Chongbing delivers a complex and rich handling of paint that combines the technique of collage, paper soaking, and ink and white acrylic layering. His work in the ink medium embodies a concept in which matter both imposes on its own form and also produces a metaphysical dimension. His works can be found in the public collections of The British Museum, London, England, the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, and the Daimler Art Collection, Germany among others.
