Fine Art by Jamie Zhang





 

Welcome to the Web Site of one of China's most promising artists!

Jamie Zhang (Zhang Hui) represents Chinese art at its finest. Her paintings effortlessly blend elements of Western painting with ancient Chinese methods and materials.  Her water based paints are mixed from mineral and vegetable pigments and applied to rice papers with animal hair brushes.  The results are stunning and sensitive paintings unmatched by any other media.  If you would like to purchase or commission a piece please contact the artist by email at jamiezhanghui@gmail.com.

The Galleries

Modern Western painting is in part marked by its assimilation of "exotic" elements from Eastern painting and African sculpture.  Asian influences can be seen in the work of  Gauguin, Manet, van Gogh, Cezanne, Matisse, Klimt, Modigliani, and others.  The East also studied Western art and music, but long standing tradition prevented much mixing of East and West.  Blends were often incongruous or artificial.  It has been rare to find a harmonious blend of West and East by Asian Artists   such as one finds in the work of Jamie Zhang.

This East-West fusion could only take place in an artist such as Jamie Zhang who spent 8 years studying Chinese and Western painting in the increasingly international city of Beijing during the 1990s at the prestigious Beijing Central Academy of Fine Art. Click here for a profile of the artist.
