Zhang Huan is a Chinese artist based in Shanghai and New York. He received a BFA from He Nan University in 1988 and an MFA from Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1993.
Huan began as part of a small artistic community known as the Beijing East Village, located on the city margins. The group pioneered a new and controversial brand of performance art.
His sculptures reflect his background in performance. Using simple and repetitive gestures, and temple music, he seeks points at which the spiritual manifests itself physically.
His work has been extensively exhibited worldwide.
