Zhang Enli

BIOGRAPHY

Born in China’s Jilin province in 1965, Zhang Enli resides in Shanghai, his studio in the city’s creative epicentre of Moganshan Road art district. Capturing ordinary objects from unusual vantage points, Enli brings a poetry to daily life; revered for his lightness of touch, his expressive, flowing lines and use of empty space recall traditional Chinese brush paintings, while sheer application of paint over faint, pencil-drawn grids left visible make the objects appear removed.
