Biography

b. 1963, Shenyang, China

Lives and works in Montreal, Canada

Zhang He specialized in oil painting at the LuXun Institute of Art after completing studies in Photography and Stage Design. Zhang He moved to Montreal, Canada in 1998 where he currently lives and works.

In his refusal to settle on easy formulae, the artist has induced a process of constant reinvention that has given his art extraordinary power and momentum over the past decade. He’s bright paintings have developed from depictions of abstracted plants, flowers and figures to full on visual abstraction. His vigorous abstractions range from austere studies in movement and energy to exuberant explosions of color that express the ever-changing landscape of his emotions. Gestural power and luminous hues reflect the verve and freedom of Chinese calligraphy, while each painting is a journey of self-discovery, continual exploration, and personal transformation.
