Born in Beijing, China, 1993, and Lives and works in Beijing, China
"In my painting practice, I don't think that inspiration will come out of thin air, however through diligent creation, mixing colors, and moving brushes; the constant evolving imagery itself will bring me to a steady stream of new inspiration."
– Zhang Zipiao
