Artist Guigen Zha references Salvador Dali in this surrealist scene of Chinese cultural relics. Starlings rest on plum tree branches floating in the dreamy blue sky. On the shadowed steps toward the still water, oriental artifacts glisten in the sunlight. An etched mural of a family appears golden on one side and colored in the shade. "Everything in the painting has actually existed in the same space and time," notes Guigen.

Rancho Cucamonga, California

From cross-cultural life experiences, artist Guigen Zha presents conceptual compositions of traditional Chinese art imposed on contemporary elements. He seeks a balance of the harmonic and contradictory in each artwork—a synthesis of different artistic traditions. Guigen's creative passion led him to a fruitful career as an art teacher, animation artist, and graphic designer in Shenzhen and Shanghai. He migrated to the United States and finished his BFA at Missouri State University and his MFA at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Guigen bridges surrealism and postmodern art with still-life objects and their spatial relationships in the digital age. His recurring theme of eastern cultural relics brings honor to his deep connection to his heritage. "My work is a strong emotional expression of candor, belief, and hope," says Guigen. Working from his home studio, Guigen enjoys being in a state of tranquility where he can quietly contemplate. Aside from painting, he spends time writing poetry and bonding with his family—his pillar and strength. Guigen continues to work part-time as a graphic designer and art teacher.
