Zhang Shujian, born 1987 in Hunan Province, graduated from the 4th studio of the Oil Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2010. He currently lives and works in Beijing.

Zhang Shujian is known for his outstanding technique that seeks to combine Eastern and Western methods. Using oil painting or pencil on paper, he produces grotesque portraits of imaginary characters and close ups of human faces that seek to draw our attention to rarely noticed features of our anatomy.

Following graduation his work was the object of solo shows in galleries and institutions including UCCA, Taikang Space, C-Space and Canvas International Art in Amsterdam.
