Portrait of artist Zhang Zipiao

We are pleased to announce that LGDR is now working with China-based artist Zhang Zipiao, in collaboration with White Space gallery in Beijing. Zhang’s first solo exhibition with the gallery will open in New York in 2023, and the artist will be featured in LGDR’s presentations at the upcoming editions of Frieze Seoul and Art Basel Miami Beach.

Known for her enigmatic large-scale paintings, Zhang has honed a nuanced visual language that is based upon intuitive brushwork and filled with abstracted anatomical elements of flora and fauna. Often drawing inspiration from historical masters, the artist renders her canvases with a distinctive graphic line work that reflects the influence of digital imagery.

Born in 1993 in Beijing, Zhang attended the Maryland Institute College of Art and graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2015. She has mounted solo exhibitions at Salon 94, New York (2021); White Space, Beijing (2020, 2018); Mine Project Gallery, Hong Kong (2019); Star Gallery, Beijing (2017); and Ying Space, Beijing (2015). Recently, her paintings have been included in group exhibitions at Pace Palo Alto (2021) and Pearl Art Museum, Shanghai (2020), among others. Upcoming exhibitions include a solo presentation at the Long Museum, Shanghai (2022), and a group show at the Song Art Museum, Beijing (2022) and the Nanchizi Art Museum, Beijing (2022). Her work resides in the collections of the K11 Art Foundation, Hong Kong; the Long Museum, Shanghai; and the Longlati Foundation, Shanghai
