Zeng Fanzhi blends the abstract and the figurative to create works that are both immediately enjoyable and that leave an ongoing emotion once you've left the exhibition.

The artist has developed a unique palette and way of depicting the human face and hands which is extremely memorable.

 

“Painting provides me with a gateway to stay in contact with the world. What I feel, see, fear and think are all articulated through my paintings.”
