Zhang Quan is a modern master of ink painting. He is constantly examining the possibilities presented by ink painting in a contemporary and international context. The technique maybe a traditional one but Zhang Quan’s subject matter is from the modern world drawn from his everyday experiences of an artist living in China in the 21st century. Zhang Quan is an artist searching for his spiritual heritage at the same time as he’s exploring the present and future trends in international art scenes. He works in a disciplined and precise manner, carefully layering the paper with brush strokes that reduce brush and ink to their purest form.
