Zhao Zhao

Zhao Zhao was born in Xinjiang, China, in 1982. He graduated with a BFA from the Xinjiang Institute of Arts from the department of Oil Painting in 2003. Zhao Zhao’s multidisciplinary body of work is an inspection of China’s contemporary profile, and the socio-political consequences of individual human action. His abstract shattered glass paintings reveal a car accident he was involved in, and represents the ripple effect of action; his “Safe” sculptures substantiate his fellow citizens’ paranoid views on security.


Recently named one of Modern Painters “25 Artists to Watch in 2014,” Zhao Zhao has attracted a great deal of attention for the challenging nature of his practice that includes the fabrication of objects, performance, video and painting. A long-time assistant of Ai Weiwei, from whom he inherited a strong contrarian streak, Zhao Zhao invariably offers a strong critique of prevailing pieties.
