The first major illustrated narrative on Zhang Xiaogang, China’s most prominent and influential contemporary painter.
 
Written by Lü Peng, this book is both a biography of Zhang Xiaogang’s fascinating life story and an authoritative insider’s perspective of his most celebrated works. A luxuriously illustrated narrative over four decades, it provides an authentic and world-first contextual analysis of Zhang’s earliest years, family life, art studies, intellectual conflicts, European experiences, and his Bloodline work.

Zhang Xiaogang is a leading artist of the Chinese Avant-garde.

Solo and group exhibitions worldwide.

Inspired by family photos from the Cultural Revolution period, as well as the European tradition of surrealism, Zhang Xiaogang’s paintings engage with the notion of identity within the Chinese culture of collectivism.

Through his expansive clan of replica characters, Xiaogang questions notions of otherness, difference, and perception.

Lü Peng is an international curator, critic, art historian, and author. He is the director of CHINART and the Chengdu MOCA and associate professor at the School of Arts and Humanities, China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. Bruce Doar has a PhD in Chinese studies, is a researcher, translator, editor, scholar, and writer affiliated with the Chinese Studies Centre of the University of Sydney.
