Welcome to Charity!
Zhang Enli (Jilin, 1965) is an abstract artist. He graduated from the Arts and Design Institute of Wuxi Technical University in 1989, before making his home in Shanghai. Known for his expressive brush painting, Zhang uses the outside world as a mirror and documents the more prosaic aspects of contemporary life. He regularly works with everyday objects that he is instinctively drawn to, for example a piece of string, a hose, or even a marble ball from the floor of his studio.
Zhang has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions, including at the Power Station of Art, Shanghai; Galleria Borghese, Rome; K11 Foundation, China; Hauser & Wirth, New York; and the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London.
