Shao Yuan Zhang
Salt Lake City, Utah

Art has been with Shao Yuan Zhang for the majority of his extraordinary, and at times difficult, life journey. Raised in communist China, Zhang was sent to the countryside as a teenager where he worked in the rice fields and created Cultural Revolution propaganda art for the communist party. He immigrated to the U.S. in the 1980s and settled in Utah to attend art school. His energetic paintings of racehorses juxtapose a contemporary feel with a traditional Chinese ink painting style. Through the combination of subject matter and technique, Zhang incorporates both the East and West in his work.
